Looking ahead to 2020, we have many new things to share with you, including new successes and stories of how we positively impact childrens' lives. See you at our upcoming events.

Thank you for Helping Make
" Home, Heart & Harmony" Gala a Success!
On the last day of National Adoption Month, more than 200 people came out to our fundraising gala! We are beyond grateful for their generous support.

Our tremendous appreciation to: sponsors, board, staff (CAP and Riverside Productions), emcee, volunteers, cash call participants, musicians, silent auction donors, photographers, videographers, media, and everyone who stepped in to lend a hand. Your support helps us to make a difference in the lives of children waiting in foster care.
Spunky and resilient, Kalysa came to speak at last month's Heart Gallery event, and won over our hearts!

Kalysa is a kind and caring teen, loyal and affectionate, and empathetic to others.

She likes music, cats and dogs and would love to be in a home with animals. She is interested in having younger siblings, although might do well as an only child. She hopes to belong to a family who will love her, support and believe in her, and guide her as she grows. Read more...
