Tamera and Shantrell Johnson

My name is Tamera Johnson I’m 24 and my sister Shantrell Johnson is 21.
We are Katrina survivors When we first go into the Child Protective Services system we were young and had no idea how to contact any family members Mrs. Rose was our Casa and she took the time to find and help us connect with family members.
Mrs. Rose always spent extra time with us encouraging us and talking to us about positive ways to express anger and communicate with our foster parents and other kids in the home.
Mrs. Rose helped us realize no matter what our situation was we were strong enough could do whatever we set our mind to do. Today I’m a student at UTA in which I graduate in May 2020.
I’m a site leader for the Girls and Boys Club and have eight people who work under me.
My sister Shantrell attends TCC in Arlington. Her major is business and she works part-time at Ross Department store. We are very grateful for the talks of encouragement we received from Mrs. Rose.

From: Paula and Francisco, we just wanted to let you know how grateful we are for your help since the beginning of the pandemic, of the times you have given groceries to us and our son’s family, and many other ways you have helped us.  May God bless you Mrs. Rose Braziel for your charitable actions.

Our Parents

We are Mr. and Mrs.    and have been the foster parents for Tamera and Shantrell Johnson for thirteen years Mrs. Rose was the girl’s Casa for six years. We were the foster parents of many, but Mrs. Rose was the Casa for Tamera and Shantrell. We were very grateful to have her come to our house as a Casa.
She was only required to spend an hour with the girls twice a month but she was always 2-4 hours, sometimes more than three times a month.
She didn’t just spend time with the girls she always spent time with all the foster kids in our home talking to them about getting along with, good communication, and positive ways to express anger.
She treated all the kids with kindness and love. She once helped the kids make a shoring board to help teach them structure in our home. Mrs. Rose became like a family member to us, she went to both the girl’s high school graduation and she still comes to visit the family

Testimony for Hope-4-Kids Foundation CEO

It is my pleasure and privilege to write a testimony for Hope-4-Kids Foundation CEO and Founder, the incredible Rose Braziel. I worked with Rose in her capacity as a volunteer Child Advocate with CASA of Tarrant County in Fort Worth, Texas for approximately four years.

As an Advocate for abused and neglected children in the foster care system, Rose showed herself to be responsible, capable, and committed.  She exercised good judgment and decision-making skills in her cases.  Rose never hesitated to take on more difficult cases, welcoming the challenge.  In fact, she often went above the call of duty, staying with “her” children as a trustworthy constant in their lives after the legal aspects had been resolved.  Rose worked with a culturally diverse group of families and demonstrated respect, caring, and compassion for everyone she met.  She was thorough in her observations, making detailed notes regarding what was in the best interest of the children she served. In addition, Rose demonstrated flexibility when plans changed.
