Kidsave may have a select number of scholarships available for advocate families for children who would not be able to travel otherwise. Scholarships are awarded based on need and the appropriateness of a family to host and advocate for available children. If you wish to apply for a scholarship, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Agency service fees ($1,500) are paid directly to Children’s Home for guidance of families, education, preparation of hosting assessments and support during the duration of the hosting experience. See https://chlss.org/blog/vidoc/kidsave-flyer/ for more details.
