Be A Giver

As we reach December we wanted to do something different in the season of giving. We here at Mama Kat's feel so blessed to have a place that is such a haven for so many, from our wonderful staff, to the beautiful communities that support us we feel it is time to use our establishment to give back. This year we will be giving call ahead seating privileges for parties up to six. But unlike a silent auction for a few we will be giving as many as we can in order to raise funds for a local charity dear to our hearts. To support this wonderful cause follow here. www.mamakats.com/giving

Straight from the Heart is a non-profit resource center for foster, adoptive, kinship children and their caregivers. They provide support and advocacy to the children and families who navigate a very complex and overburdened Child Welfare System. Their volunteer staff is made up of foster and adoptive parents who understand the challenges first-hand because they have lived it themselves. In fact, the Founder, Patty Boles, has fostered over 100 children herself over the years.
Maybe you’re familiar with the Straight from the Heart Thrift Shop. It is a great little shop full of donations from throughout the community. Anyone can shop there and all proceeds benefit foster families. In fact, stop in some day. You’ll be amazed at what great things you find – from infant to adult clothing, toys, household items and more.
But, that’s only the start. The store is also a fabulous resource for foster families who visit regularly because they can purchase children’s clothing for 50 cents a piece and receive a 50% discount on all other merchandise. This is such a valuable resource for foster parents because foster children arrive with only the clothes on their backs and they have to be ready for school the next day! The store makes it possible for foster parents to quickly stock up on what that child needs.
But, this building is more than a thrift store. The Straight from the Heart Resource Center has three training rooms and offers on-going training to foster families to teach them how to work with difficult behaviors and medical concerns. They help them connect to important Community Resources, teach them their legal rights, how to work as a member of the Child Welfare Team, and most importantly, how to deal with grief, separate and loss for the children and then for the foster family when children are reunified with their families.
