Albany -- An area non-profit agency is making sure children living without their biological parents have a Merry Christmas. 

Georgia Safe Therapeutic Foster Care held a big party tonight for children and their foster parents. Kids got a chance to sing, dance, and enjoy good food.

They have parties like this to show their appreciation to the foster parents and to spread a little cheer to children who are often put in difficult situations.  

"Our kids are in foster care, they're already away from their families so we just want to do something very special for them to let them know that even though they're not with their families they're still going to have a good Christmas and its still people out here who live them," says Dee Dee Connolly.

Currently Georgia Safe has 33 children in care and 21 families participating.

Organizers say there's still a huge need for foster parents in South Georgia.
