About 4Montgomery’s Kids

Some of Our Stories

Summer Camp

4Montgomery’s Kids sends many children to summer camps. Most are the result of simple requests for usual camp activities. Some requests are more complex. For example, we sent siblings who witnessed domestic violence to a special overnight camp, and we sent an older child struggling with depression to a traveling teen camp.

Graduating in Style

A is a foster teen who was set to graduate from high school when commencement was cancelled because of the pandemic. The ceremony was rescheduled at the last minute as a virtual event, and seniors were encouraged to “attend” in cap and gown. 4 Montgomery’s Kids rented the graduation package and A proudly “received” his diploma—exactly like the rest of his classmates.

Fulfilling a Young Girl’s Dream to Drive

R is a high school student who recently moved from one foster care placement to another. Then came the pandemic—and with it, online learning. 4Montgomery’s Kids purchased a tablet for him so R could attend his new school virtually and get to know his new classmates. With the help of his foster parents, R also is using the tablet for tutoring in Spanish.

Providing a Critical Outlet

C is a foster teen with autism. He had difficulty adjusting when pandemic restrictions no longer allowed him to attend school or participate in his usual afterschool activities. 4Montgomery’s Kids paid for a new bicycle.  Bike riding now gives C the daily routine he missed, with the benefit of exercise and a way to release energy. 

The Young Champion

A 9-year-old foster child’s pee-wee football team was scheduled to travel to Florida for a championship playoff. The young boy was able to join his team when 4Montgomery’s paid the way.  (His team won!)

We’ve made a difference in the lives of over 900 kids.

A need to some is only a dream when it’s out of reach. 4Montgomery’s Kids helps children in the foster care system in Montgomery County, Maryland achieve their dreams, both big and small.

What Others are Saying About Us

I am a youth in foster care and I had the support of 4Montgomery’s Kids. They helped me when I was pregnant and needed baby supplies. I am thankful because I was not working because of COVID, and did not have anything for my baby. They helped me a lot.”

“This is a great resource for our kids and provide us with a way to bring them incentives as well as well-deserved rewards for their efforts.”
