May is National Foster Care Month
Help us kick-start our May foster care events; raise awareness about the kids who still need homes; and celebrate the amazing families who foster, adopt or provide kinship care. Take a #ChalkWalk with family and friends. Stay afterwards and enjoy the complimentary face-painting for attendees, as well as an obstacle course, Peace Love, Playmakers, Giant Jenga, Kindness Rocks and activities. Kids can also hop over to the playground and just be kids!
During the walk, participants will read powerful statements from kids in care. Participate in the scavenger hunt where you will earn a chance to win prizes and learn more about child development. At the end of your stroll, we hope you will leave a message of encouragement to Connecticut kids in care on our #ChalkWalk wall.
Foster care agencies and community resource tables will be available to speak with you about local agencies’ services and programs. Learn more about resources for your family and children. Find out more about foster care and adoption. You can change the life of a youth in foster care.
For Spanish-speaking families, we will have volunteers on hand to provide interpretation.
Not everyone can foster.
Not everyone can mentor.
But everyone can do something.
On April 27, make this your something.
Help us change lives.
Join us on the eve of National Foster Care Month and learn more about foster care and adoption.
