In our communities, people just like you are helping our children build brighter futures by serving as partner families and adoptive parents. No matter how little time you may have to offer, there is something you can do to make a child’s life story a better one.
IF YOU HAVE JUST A FEW MINUTES
Make a financial contribution to support personal enrichment or education of a young person in out-of-home care (summer camp, field trips and sports leagues). Donate goods such as baby items (diapers, wipes, strollers, cribs, etc.), gently used clothing, hygiene products or school supplies. Help spread the word of the need for quality partner families especially for teens and sibling groups.
IF YOU HAVE JUST A FEW HOURS
Volunteer with local partner family and adoption programs or activities. Host a partner family or adoption event (Christmas Party or Celebrate Adoption). Participate in Partnership for Strong Families' (PSF) "Wish Upon A Star" Holiday Toy Drive.
IF YOU HAVE A LITTLE MORE TIME
Become a partner family or adoptive parent. Partner families are changing out-of-home care by preserving a sense of connection and permanency in the life of every child, even during the most challenging times. This is done by promoting reunification with the natural family; but if this cannot be achieved, then by parenting the child through the adoption process. Caring families are especially needed for older youth, siblings and children with special needs.
No matter what amount of time or level of commitment you have to offer, you can make a significant difference in the life of a child. Help kids in our community through financial/goods donations, hosting an event, or becoming a partner family or adoptive parent.
