“At Braley & Thompson, we have the opportunity to spread warmth and love to the children and teens throughout the State of Virginia as they navigate the foster care system. We are thankful for our surrounding communities and the outpouring of support provided around the work we do for children and families,” said Sandra Bermudez with Braley & Thompson. “We invite them all to join us in donating blankets this winter season to help the youth we serve feel comfortable and at home, wherever that may be.”
Braley & Thompson helps connect children in need with foster families who can provide comforting, nurturing homes. The organization has been serving Virginia communities since 1979 and provides foster care services, respite care, training for foster parents, independent living transitional services for young adults, and mental health support services. Braley & Thompson is always looking for new foster families to help children in the community who need safe, caring living environments.
