Why I believe in the mission of the Faine House

WELBRO Building Corporation has been a strong supporter of The Faine House and the Children's Home Society of Florida.  Last year, WELBRO raised over $18K and had more than 50 of our associates, family, subcontractors, vendors and friends participate in the worthy cause.  It is our hope that this year we can surpass both monies raised and the number of participates this year!!!  

With no family or friends to go to at this important stage in their lives, where to they turn for love, support and shelter?  The Faine House was developed to bridge this gap and allow these individuals a chance to develop and prosper in a protected environment.  

Four (4) years ago, WELBRO lead the effort to transform an existing structure into The Faine House and we are rightfully proud of our efforts.  This facility has served as the transitional home of dozens of kids with the hope they will all become productive members of society.  

Our COO, Bruce Holmes is a former foster parent and the adoptive parent of three (3) foster children.  He has observed from afar the devastation in a child's life who is not properly nurtured and cared for during their formative years.  The Faine House offers one last hope to turn around the lives of these young adults.  We strongly hope that you will consider participating in this most worthy event, or making a contribution.  Thank you.

About The Faine House:

On the front lines of child welfare since 1902, Children's Home Society of Florida is devoted to help build strong families throughout Florida.  And here in Orlando, Children's Home Society of Florida has served thousands of children and families in the past 50 years, by providing a variety of programs that focus on child abuse and neglect prevention and intervention, adoption and adoption support services, mentoring and help for troubled, runaway and homeless teens, and providing The Faine House to teens that have transitioned out of the foster care system and need extended care to succeed.

The Faine House provides Steps to Success, five essential steps to change the path of an at-risk young adult: education, housing & transportation, employment, health & wellness and personal finance. Upon move-in, residents craft a Life Plan to guide their progress. Taking each step together, The Faine House assists in their growth. Through the development of each life skill, residents progress, become empowered and enter our community as confident adults.
