Welcome to CAP/Corbett's December eNews

We are thrilled and grateful to the hundreds who attended our 2018 Heart Gallery fundraising luncheon on November 27. 

It was major step to have internationally celebrated author  Christina Baker Kline as our keynote. Her Orphan Train presentation was as powerful as it was illuminating.

A big "thank you" also to our board, staff, and volunteers, emcee  Don Alhart CAP/  Corbett Board President Maryjane Link , videographer  Matt Churpita and the  Henry Family for the new video that premiered at the event. And congratulations to  Peggy and David Soule , recipients of the first-ever Founders' Award. Well deserved!

A Message from Executive Director Lauri McKnight...

As we prepare for holiday celebrations, we often take it for granted that we will be surrounded by the love of our families.

But for the n early 108,000 eligible foster children (25,000 in New York State) waiting to be adopted, there are no forever families.  They need to hear messages of hope. They need to hear "Yes, you're worth it," and "You are my family. No one will ever take you away." 

On October 31, the Henry family spoke those words to Shane and  Mariana, who spent 1,286 days--three and a half years--in foster care. They never have to worry
again about being loved and cared for in a forever family.

Please help us create more forever families like the Henrys. Our annual campaign relies on you for donations; we do not receive any government funding.  Your donations:
  • support our ability to match children in foster care with adoptive families
  • allow us to educate the community
  • allow us to train and mentor potential adoptive families and break down barriers to adoption. 
  • forever change the life of a child 
Click here to safely donate online  or call our office at (585) 232-5110. Thank you so very much, and happy holidays.
