Celebrating the Grand Opening of The Moore for Kids Family Home

On Tuesday, July 18, 2017, Our Lady of Victory Homes of Charity and Baker Victory Services celebrated the grand opening of The Moore for Kids Family Home. Though a $1 million donation from Robert and Kristi Moore to our ongoing Capital Campaign, we were blessed to open a house that functions as a sanctuary for loved ones whose children are undergoing treatment at Baker Victory Services’ residential sites.

The home is also used as an Emergency Foster Care “safe haven” for children who are removed from unsafe living situations (by state and/or county agencies such as Child Protective Services) and are in urgent need of a place to live. 

 “At one time or another, every individual faces difficulty in his or her life,” Rob Moore, co-founder of The Robert and Kristi Moore Foundation, said.  “As Christians and followers of faith, my wife, Kristi, and I have dedicated our lives to ensuring that children who are negatively affected by life events - or their surroundings - have a voice and are cared for through the programs and services we support.  Western New York is our home and we are resolute in our efforts to care for the children of the region. We are proud to partner with Our Lady of Victory to bring The Moore for Kids Family Home to life – a home that will care teens, adults and families and carry on the work of Father Baker.”
