Because of Sharon’s drive to help children in distress, she serves simultaneously on the Children First Counseling Center Board of Directors where her experience and passion are providing substantial support for our organization. The children we serve are benefitting from her leadership and hard work. “Imagine” Foundation is the perfect name for an organization founded by a visionary!

This non-profit organization has helped so many young teens and children out of situations that were unspeakable. And helped families that were in need. Assisted with children that were in foster care, to bring adopted in to loving and caring homes.
This organization works as a team, and is always there to help the ones in need.
I'm privileged and honored in bring part of this esteemed organization!

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!

Imagine Foundation provides extraordinary help to children or all ages for a broad spectrum of needs. Sharon is a steadfast advocate that is relentless when she is helping children and families. She has many areas of expertise and she combines this with her wisdom and genuine spirt to go above and beyond in each situation until it is formally resolved - even if it takes years for her efforts to come full circle. Through this foundation, Sharon can dedicate endless volunteer hours to provide support and guidance through situations most people would steer clear of because the gravity of some situations would cause negative ramifications for years to come if not handled well. Sharon takes these cases on full throttle with the belief that there is no end until there is a successful resolution. Imagine Foundation conducts all efforts to help children and families with integrity and transparency that is not seen in other nonprofits I have worked with in my career. I can say from first-hand experience that the lives of hundreds of abused, neglected and exploited children have been positively impacted by Sharon's advocacy and determination to make sure that the organizations responsible for capitalizing on these children and their unfortunate circumstances are held accountable for continuing to harm the very children they were trusted to protect and nurture. Imagine Foundation is a true example of how a nonprofit should conduct business and truly reflect the vision, mission and goals established by any nonprofit organization.

“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 have been an advisor to Sharon Moen Roubenik ever since she wrote her business plan for Imagine Foundation for Kids. At that time, it was just a dream. Now it is a reality. Some people talk about helping make the world a better place. Sharon takes action to make it happen. Her girls ranch near Houston is just one example of that. Sharon is a team player and networks with other nonprofits and agencies to make her goals a reality. In my advocacy work with the foster care and other communities, I see many good ideas thrown out there, but little follow-through. Sharon follows through. As a former foster youth myself, it is such a pleasure to know such a kind person who truly cares about the kids and is making life easier for them than when I was in care. I can only hope Imagine Foundation for Kids continues growing with her leadership and everyone else on her board and team, because they truly are making a difference. It is truly a pleasure and honor to have a small part in the success of this organization.

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.

Our efforts continue and our vision grows! Last December, I was honored and selected to be a Global Goodwill Ambassador. We have had an awesome year connecting globally with the elite of humanitarians across the world. Our organization is dedicated to working on several projects this year including hospitals with the highest level of physicians and staff that can minister and help mental health in Texas. We are in the early stages of opening more facilities with beautiful homes and surroundings for kids at risk and also addressing the needs of children in their biological families that are at risk! We are also in the early stages of developing schools addressing the needs at the highest level of this population!

I continue to watch and observe how awesome this organization is and the kids they help. I witnessed a girl's ranch being opened earlier this year and have knowledge of other ranches in the planning stages for children. I attended a court hearing for kids and a foster Mom finally getting results and adoption fighting for years to get that done!

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.

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’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.

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 deal", she is rare, and I feel the privilege and blessing to know someone who walks "her talk". She's 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!
I wholeheartedly love this foundation and what it stands for, and I can't wait to get more involved!
Thank YOU, Sharon!!!
