Leading the Way —
An Innovative Approach

Leading the way with bold vision, FosterAdopt Connect’s board and staff approved an aggressive five year plan that expands our essential programs into SWMO to serve the growing number of children and families waiting for services.

Through generous gifts from the Hulston Family Foundation, Bill and Virginia Darr, and other fundraising efforts, we purchased our current building in December 2018.

New Horizons — Progress for Kids

Acknowledging the growing program waitlists and the limitation of our current space for expansion, we will undertake a much needed building renovation. Creating spaces that are welcoming and safe and that have access to supportive services is invaluable to youth and foster families.

FosterAdopt Connect’s Cheri Carter Clark Resource Center $1,560,000 campaign will:

Maximize space and utility of offices

Upgrade Sammy’s Window clothing closet

Add a larger food pantry to Sammy’s Window

Enlarge our community training facility

Add Kinship Navigator program

Increase the number of kids served in recruitment programs

Expand Sammy’s Window service area

Broaden rapid rehousing opportunities for youth

“We choose to support FosterAdopt Connect as we feel that every child deserves the opportunity to be successful. The work that this organization does on a daily basis is critical to lifting up our local youth and families in the foster care system and ensuring that they have the necessary resources to succeed.”

~ Bill and Virginia Darr, Community Philanthropists
