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 registered walkers, as well as games and activities. Kids can 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 foster care. 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 will be available to speak with you about opportunities to help. You can change the life of a youth in foster care.
Not everyone can foster.
Not everyone can mentor.
But everyone can do something.
On April 30, 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.

Proceeds from the walk will be donated to the Annie C Alumni Scholarship Fund benefiting young adults who have aged out of foster care. The fund provides aid for young adults in need of employment.
