This organization has some of the most visionary, caring, big-hearted people on the planet at its helm and I am so excited that they are up and running! I know that countless children will be helped through Imagine Kids Foundation, and I cannot wait to see its mission unfold.

“Imagine”. For many, that one word may conjure up wondrous and fanciful things; unfortunately however, for numerous others, circumstances may be such that “imagine” never enters their heads and is a frivolous notion as they are just simply trying to survive in the day-to-day world.

Through the shining commitment, dedication, incredible inspiration and determination of founder, Sharon Roubinek, Imagination for Kids offers hope for the forgotten and disadvantaged ones. Those children deserve to be nurtured, loved unconditionally, cared for and live in an environment that fosters their imagination through healing and growth! I am privileged, proud and honored to be a board member of this foundation that advocates for these children and also offers support to families in need.

It is with much gratitude and thankfulness that I acknowledge the amazing Walsh Family who along with Sharon, are extremely passionate and instrumental in running the faith-filled girls ranch near Houston. It is the hope and belief of all of us involved that we ARE truly making a positive impact on children…one life at a time.

I learned about this organization through my business and have been so impressed with the mission of this foundation. Their effort and dedication to provide safe heaven for kids motivates me often. Their girls programs directors, Angela and James, are one of the most caring and kind people one can hope to meet. They are humble, loving, and are devoted to the betterment of the children.

I have never met a group of people so dedicated to make a positive impact on the "forgotten" children. Haven been a previous foster child myself, I am overwhelmed with gratitude to Sharon and the Walsh Family. These individuals commit, act, respond and execute as if they are very angels sent from above. It is my honor to be associated with an organization that is truly making a positive difference in children, one life at a time.

Have you ever met someone who shines a light so brightly that you are filled with gratitude and thankfulness that such a person has been introduced into your world? I felt this way when I met Sharon Roubinek this past year collaborating on a project together.
Sharon is truly the "real and rare deal", and I feel the privilege and blessing to know someone who walks "her talk". She's been an incredible inspiration as her life's journey has been all about helping others; if anyone had one tenth of her passion for helping kids- they would merit the Nobel Prize as she has been that instrumental in changing disadvantaged childrens' lives for the better, and I am thrilled to serve under her on the IMAGINE board.
I wholeheartedly love that the IMAGINE Foundation gives children their right to be loved unconditionally in a spectacular environment. They will heal, grow, and "Imagine" with the Wondrous WALSH family beginning in HOUSTON soon!!! I can't wait.
Thank YOU, SHARON and The WALSH Family!!! xoxo

I have seen the dedication, emotion, and long nights spent working on behalf of families and children who have nowhere else to go. The pure commitment to making sure no child is left hopeless and uncared for is evident in everything the members of this foundation do on a daily basis. In a world where there is so much dishonesty, this is the foundation I would go to and trust completely.

There is so much I would like to write about Imagine Foundation for Kids! This non profit organization has given so much to children, teens and to families in need. Sharon the founder and her team of this esteem organization, have worked tirelessly for many a year. Making sure those who are in need, are safe and sound. The (soon to be) opening of the girl's ranch in Houston is the first of many that will help the helpless, and give hope to the ones that thought there was none. A true caring non profit organization that cares about the well-beings of this diverse country. Proud to be a part of this fantastic venture, board and organization. Thank you Sharon, for giving these kids and teens hope!

There’s no greater challenge and no greater need than working with kids that have been abandoned, abused and neglected. Without intervention at an early age they will most likely remain emotionally damaged for a lifetime. Sharon R. is driven with a passion to help children but passion is not enough. It takes knowledge and experience to put together a program that will impact children, bring healing and long term character change. I’ve known her and of her work for more than 25 years. Her sacrifice of time, funds and longevity is proof she can effectively help the neediest of kids. Author, Not Me, It's a Trap a book for kids

Imagine is focused on helping children have a good, meaningful life free from abuse. They are actively helping girls who typically have a much harder time finding a foster home.

I don't know how Sharon Roubinek finds enough time for sleep, much less down time. She works tirelessly to intervene and rescue kids that are hurting and at risk. Imagine Foundation for Kids was birthed out out of a passion to make a difference.

This foundation really cares not only about the children, but the families that have struggled with at risk youth. I have personally had experience, as a parent. I was overwhelmed and confused; yet I was given personal attention with sincerity and grace. I wasn't just another number or consumer standing in line. This foundation I would recommend to everyone because they truly care about these kiddos and the families that go with them.

I have yet to meet anyone that works as hard for children from all backgrounds as Sharon. Her perseverance through the often bureaucratic nature of child advocacy is very inspiring. I am blessed to know her.

Sharon Moen Roubinek has a great vision for this organization. At-risk children are in desperate need of what she is offering through this organization: housing, education, health care, counseling, educational and vocational opportunities. Not only will they provide the above, but they will ensure each child is treated with proper respect and compassion. Networking with other other companies that provide drug and alcohol detox, adoption, foster parenting, food bank and legal services on both public and private basis will be instrumental in the success of the Foundation. That is where my organization Foster Leaders Movement comes into play. We are providing networking opportunities for Sharon's endeavors. This type of organization is extremely important to the Foster Care Community, especially to the youth aging out.
