About our community collaborative 2017-07-26T15:31:54+00:00

Open mind. Open hearts. Open Homes.

fakct logo community collaborativeThe Foster, Adoptive & Kinship Coalition Team is an Annie C project serving northwestern CT. It is an open community collaborative composed of regional and statewide organizations dedicated to placing children in safe, nurturing homes across Connecticut. In 1997, it began as part of a statewide initiative conceived by the CT Department of Children and Families to help identify the unmet needs of foster families. This initiative quickly grew into a vehicle that provided a unique opportunity for child welfare providers and other concerned citizens to collaborate and share resources and ideas aimed at supporting and recruiting foster and adoptive families. Today, we are one of the two remaining regional community collaboratives for foster care and adoption in CT.

Family Fun Day community collaborativeOur partners include independent, non-profit, child-placing agencies, the CT Department of Children and Families, other family service organizations, corporate partners, foster/adoptive and kinship families, as well as community leaders in foster care and adoption. We all work together to identify new family resources for CT’s children in care. Resources are identified by conducting information meetings or “Open Houses” in towns in the northwest region of CT as well as by member attendance at community events. We also assist agencies that support current foster and adoptive families by staging events designed to promote family fun and cultural sensitivity. One of our signature events is a yearly Family Fun Day at Quassy Amusement Park.  The community collaborative also sponsors an annual scholarship dedicated to the memory of Kay Wyrick and given out to a graduating high school senior of color who is currently, or was, in the CT foster care system.

Do it for the kids.
Do it for yourself.
Do it to make a difference.

Our state needs more patient, responsible, loving adults to help foster children and youth succeed in life. Consider becoming a foster or adoptive parent, a mentor, or a respite provider. You will be giving the gift of family to a deserving child or youth. Annie C is here to help you make that difference.
