Supporting Ventura County Foster/Resource Families, Kinship Families, Adoptive Families, and Bio-families currently working with Kids & Families Together Kids & Families Together (K&FT) is a nonprofit that has been serving foster/resource, adoptive, kinship, and birth families throughout Ventura County since 2000. K&FT works with children who have experienced trauma, abuse, neglect, loss, and multiple placements. K&FT also works with caregivers who need specialized education, support, and strategies to help raise safe, healthy, nurtured children that thrive.
Kids & Families Together in partnership with Heart 2 Heart, and our community partner, Crosspointe Church Ventura, will be hosting the annual Cozy Holiday Gift~Away event on Saturday, December 12th for the Ventura County foster/resource, kinship, adopted and birth families we serve in our programs. This annual event has always captured the heart of holiday season and this year will be no different! Cozy Holiday 2020 will be a contactless, drive-thru event set up with beautiful holiday themes throughout. Families will be able to drive through and view … a Train Depot, Gingerbread Village, the Grinch’s Sleigh and Santa’s Toy Shoppe. Children will be able to drop off letters (in a safe way) to Santa & Mrs. Clause as they drive by Santa’s Living Room.
Children and families will be provided items such as store gift cards, toys, electronics, pajamas and throw-blankets. Despite the current situation, this will be a fun family event with music, lots of holiday decorations and treats! We are encouraging all of our families attending the event to dress in their favorite holiday outfits, maybe even their favorite “ugly Christmas sweater”!
We are grateful to our Cozy Holiday partners and event sponsors that come from all over Ventura County to support our families: The Gene Haas Foundation, Crosspointe Church Ventura, James Storehouse, Toys for Tots, Kelsey Contreras & staff of Old Navy Pacific View Mall, Roxanne & Keira Danielsen representing Camarillo Amber’s Light Lions Club, and the Helpful Honda Team!
