The History of KidSanctuary Campus
In 2009, Connie Frankino learned that the local foster care system was in crisis, with dozens of children removed from their homes each month due to abuse and neglect. These hurting children felt unloved and abandoned, and Connie decided to do something about it. Realizing it would take a team to be successful, she brought in Place of Hope as the management organization partner to run all programs. KidSanctuary Campus was born to ensure that each child who lives on the campus receives the benefits of a sense of belonging and permanency in a caring and positive environment that nurtures self-esteem and hope.
Construction began in 2012 to build four residential family-style foster homes. The first of the four, the J.M. Rubin Cottage, opened in 2012 to serve six children. In 2014, a second cottage, The Dodero Cottage, welcomed six girls into their new home. Another boys’ cottage, Sam’s Cottage, opened in 2015, becoming the third family-style foster home on the campus. The fourth and final cottage, the Sprayregen Family Cottage for boys, opened in 2018. Finally, in 2022, The Angel Crossing Enrichment Center opened on campus, providing education and enrichment opportunities. From Frankino’s original vision emerged one campus with four cottages, and hundreds of children’s lives changed.
On August 1, 2022, Frankino and the Board donated the campus and gave ownership to Place of Hope to continue the legacy she created. Since KidSanctuary Campus opened its doors, 133 children have found refuge, healing, love, and a brighter future.
“I’m proud to support KidSanctuary Campus, Place of Hope, and the 9th Annual Holiday Hoedown by the Sea,” says Barr. “Since KidSanctuary Campus’ inception and partnership with Place of Hope, the lives of 133 abused, neglected, and abandoned children in Palm Beach County have been transformed. With continued support from the community, we can change the lives of many more kids in the local foster system. I look forward to another successful fundraiser.”
“I welcome everyone in the community who cares about foster children to come out and enjoy the 9th Annual Holiday Hoedown by the Sea,” adds Pisani. “We have another fabulous evening planned for guests, with all proceeds benefiting KidSanctuary Campus and Place of Hope to allow them to continue to rescue, nurture, and educate at-risk children in Palm Beach County. I’m proud to support this worthy cause.”
