CATHOLIC CHARITIES WEST MICHIGAN

Confident Kids

Back-To-School Hair Care

Every day, Catholic Charities West Michigan cares for 300 children in foster care. These children experience extreme trauma that can affect their bodies, brains, behavior, and self-worth. When entering foster care, children are often removed from their families, neighborhoods, and sometimes even siblings and placed in an unknown home with unknown rules and norms. At CCWM, we work to promote safety and understanding for the children we serve. 

Confident Kids is a day where children in foster care can celebrate their unique identities and their diversity and feel truly special. At the event, we will provide all children in our foster care program haircuts, styles, braiding, and back-to-school supplies. This day is focused on empowering the children in our care to know they are special, loved, and worthy. 

The Confident Kids event helps educate current foster parents in areas of cultural competence, how to enable children of all backgrounds to connect with diverse leaders in the community, and how to empower children to feel confident.
