A home for Maurice
One Church One Child of Florida is reaching out to families and individuals in communities across the state in efforts to help find permanent homes for children.
Daily, over 700 children are in need of a family to call their own; many of them are minorities.
April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month and churches are asked to partner with One Church One Child in sharing information with congregations and extending Watch-Care Ministries to children.
Children featured in this monthly spotlight are waiting for a permanent home and/or mentor.
Maurice is an awesome young man who endeavors to put others before himself. He has a natural ability – and desire – to lead, and he’s often found helping the younger kids at home to perfect their football spiral or three-point shot. He is respectful and kind, and has a very positive outlook on life.
He enjoys science and reading, and his favorite book is “The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven’’ by Sherman Alexie. Although he isn’t totally sure what he’d like to be when he grows up, he thinks he’d make a good football player or coach.
Maurice is an easy-going, funny kid who likes to explore new things. He’d be an amazing addition to an active family that’ll give him the consistent love and support he deserves.
