Impactful Opportunities To Provide Change

Our children often display very aggressive behaviors such as hitting, kicking, and biting when admitted to Gibault. Although parents are invested, they have exhausted all resources before coming to us for help. These children have been expelled from school and outpatient therapy has not been beneficial. It is common for us to encounter children who lack communication skills, who are behind their peers in learning, and who arrive with only the clothes on their backs, which are often too small and dirty. Some of our kids have never received a birthday or Christmas gift. Several of our youth have never seen a doctor or dentist before coming to Gibault, and they are malnourished or very overweight upon admission. Many of these kids are extremely traumatized and have experienced placements in several different foster homes or other residential treatment facilities. Your contributions help develop our programs and make vital services available to some of our most vulnerable children, adults, families, and communities. We are grateful for your support.


Your donation may be eligible for a tax credit on your Indiana tax return. The maximum amount of credit that will be granted is 50% of the donation up to $10,000 for all donations to one or multiple approved foster care organizations during any one calendar year. The tax credit approval is on a first-in, first-out basis. Complete the Foster Care Donation Application and submit to the Indiana Department of Revenue, along with proof of the donation.
