Foster and Adoptive stories that Celebrate CAFAF and 25 Years of Making a Difference
The Connecticut Alliance for Foster & Adoptive Families celebrates 25 years of dedicated service. We have stayed true to our mission to support and assist foster and adoptive families. We’re proud to have worked with many loving people along the way.
To mark our 25 year anniversary we are creating a series of blogs that celebrate the dedication, strength, commitment, and challenges of the many foster and adoptive families we have worked with over the years.
Each blog will highlight a family or individual who has gone above and beyond to make a difference in the lives of young people in Connecticut.
Following our Mission For 25 Years
CAFAF has persisted in our goal of empowering foster, adoptive, and kinship care families. We have helped them meet day-to-day challenges through support, training, advocacy, recruiting and retention (STARR) efforts.
- Training and mentoring foster and adoptive families
- Nurturing relationships and strengthening family bonds
- Promoting family safety and well-being
- Encouraging partnerships with child welfare professionals and communities
- Influencing legislation that benefits families and children
- Dispelling adoption and foster care myths
25 Years With Dedicated Foster Families
As we celebrate this amazing milestone, we honor all of the families who opened their hearts to Connecticut’s most vulnerable children. We expressly acknowledge those foster families that shared every step of our 25-year journey.
We hope you enjoy these heartfelt stories. And if one of them reminds you of someone in your life, please reach out to them and and celebrate their success too.
