Don't Forget the Children Foundation
Welcome to Don't Forget the Children Foundation [DFTCF]. DFTCF was formed to assist children cope with the consequences of the divorce of their parents. This is accomplished by providing activities, programs and training to the children and their parents that will assist them in overcoming the negative effects of antagonistic divorces. Our initial service was the Sandcastles™ Program developed by M. Gary Newman of Miami, Florida. This program has received broad acceptance and has been ordered by various courts for the children of divorce prior to the parents receiving a divorce. DFTCF is the organization chosen by Dr. Newman to bring this program to Texas. Our initial program started in the D/FW Metroplex area. Services have been expanded to include dispute resolution; marriage enrichment and divorce prevention programs for the parents and dispute resolution and social skills programs for the children.
DFTCF's has worked to educate judges, social workers, school counselors about the Sandcastles™ program.
We have now embarked on a new program called the BOBA [Baby on Board Alarm] Project. The objective of this project is to establish a single universal standard for child seat and vehicle manufactures that will make BOBA’s economical and practical. DFTCF believes it has identified a standard currently used in computers that, if adopted, will not only make BOBA's economical and practical but also has the added benefit of reducing costs in other areas.
