"Helping children that are being abused in the Foster Care System"
Rob L. Garris founded the Throwaway Kids Foundation, Inc. in 2004. This entity was formed due the overwhelming issues regarding the foster care system in America. Rob’s purpose and mission with this foundation is to form a coalition across the country to monitor the foster care system and bring changes within the system to protect and support all children in foster care as well as Adoptees. Those who are looking to obtain medical and birth records to become familiar with their history and identity are all causes that Rob works diligently to advocate for with local and national politicians as well as informing and educating his community and the surrounding communities of the injustice in the system.

Attempt to reunify children of the Foster Care System with their Biological family.

The primary goals and objectives of Throwaykids Foundation is:

* Protect kids in Foster Care by monitoring supervisory processes.
* To develop relationships with all agencies, especially grassroots organizations to bring about change in the Foster Care System.
* To be a voice of support for caseworkers who are extensively understaffed and underpaid affecting the quality of service to the Children in Foster Care System.
To form a service for adoptees with their families.

Once in every man or women’s lifetime he or she is called to take a stand that could change the world. Moses was called by God to free Israel from the mighty hand of Pharaoh. Martin Luther King to fight for the rights of his people. Many are called, but few are actually chosen to take the banner and stand against all odds. So is a man by the name of Rob Garris.

For the past three years, I have personally watched this man give and continually give without ever asking for anything in return but maybe just to listen to the plight of the children who have been adversely affected by the Foster Care System. The dedication and devotion that continues to be his purpose and his calling by God for his life is refreshing especially in this day and age when everyone is about their own success and what will profit them most. His trust in God for this mission to shed light on the corruption that grips this system and the lives of the children is his only focus. It doesn’t matter, black or white, he shares his story of his life of how he was fostered and only by the grace of God, was adopted by a family who loved him; which is a rare story of success for this entrepreneur business man for over then years.

His knowledge of statistics of the millions who have gone through the Foster Care System is phenomenal. Politicians, celebrities, but this most incredible, the soldiers who fight and have fought for this country and are denied some basic rights because of this Foster Care System.

I could go on and on, and maybe even write a book and make millions like the Anton Fisher Story and all Rob would want is for the money to help the Children in Foster Care.

May God bless this man to find the strength, endurance and fortitude to continue this fight for the less fortunate resources in our society, the children of the Foster Care System.
