Welcome to A Family For Every Child - Serving Families, Children and Agencies Nationwide / A Family For Every Child is dedicated to finding loving, permanent families for every waiting foster child.

Featured Family: Meet the Trimbo Family!

We are David and Leah, and we live in Hutchinson, Minnesota. We met 17 years ago and have been together ever since! I love reading historical novels, writing in my journal and going for walks – weather permitting! I work part-time out of our home so I have a flexible work schedule. David loves camping, jet skiing, most outdoor activities, and works full-time at a warehouse and part-time at home doing car detailing. We enjoy going to Lake Washington, spending time with my family, and playing on the lake. We have taken mini trips to Duluth and several other places in Minnesota. We love traveling and exploring other states as well and have visited Florida, Arizona, and Alaska.

2021 will mark our 13th year of providing foster and community children alike the opportunity to experience a day of pampering and fun. In 2020, we catered to more than 350 “princesses” and we expect to surpass that number in 2021! This is a regal gathering for all the children in the land. This event is to celebrate the children both in foster care and not by giving them the royal treatment. This includes being pampered, adorned in a new outfit fit for royalty, and a fancy tea party.
