Children Come First! - Veterans NEVER Forgotten!!
Organized by: Candice Andrade
We are a non-profit to be- Organization that STRONGLY believes in protecting, as well as, providing the best assistance possible to families and Veterans who reside in the East Texas and Surrounding areas. At this time we are sad to announce that there IS such a dire need as well as a high demand for the very programs and services for which we offer! Therefore, when GOD put this on my heart, (although I must admit I did NOT agree at first) I began praying without ceasing. In which time, clients came in by word of mouth and many in such a short time. To say the least, I began to see where my heart was leading me! Then, I met my current Vice President & now Best Friend!!! An Awesome Woman of God that is a great & wonderful Child Advocate and excellent asset to our Organization! However, we have had a very difficult time with financing our needed expenses including us filing our 501(c), in order to determine our State funding. Helping our clients in their time of need, let alone resources to pay employees whom have spent many hours dedicating their time as well as resources to our entire Organization to ensure our clients come first! Any amount will help tremendously and all proceeds will go directly to Children Come First! Veterans Never Forgotten!! We are here to help educate, evaluate, supervise, assist DFPS when requested/needed, advocate for all children as well as their families, advocate for Veterans and their families as well, and so much more. In order to build stronger, more educated, functioning, respectful members of society in East Texas and its Surrounding areas! The amount requested above will allow us to not only file our most needed 501 (c), it will allow us to be up and running our Organization in office, rent , utilities, wages, and insurance paid, while serving our clients and their needs too for approximately 12 months. The estimated time it will take for approval from the state! Please note that any amount will help tremendously however it will take between $400-$600,000.00 in order for us to Operate Children Come First! Veterans NEVER Forgotten!! correctly and even paying the lowest of wages to our employees. Our Personal Gratitude To Everyone In Advance! May GOD Bless Each & EVERYONE of YOU! Sincerely, C.
