Link: A Must Attend Event - FOSTER THE CITY DC

This Saturday PWNL will be exhibiting at Foster the City in DC. Below is more information about the event (or visit the link above)! We hope to see you there!

Every child deserves a loving and stable home. There are 1,300 children in DC’s foster care system, three hundred waiting for adoptive families, and thousands more across Maryland and Virginia. The good news? There’s something you can do about it.

On November 2nd the National Council For Adoption and DC127 invite you to Foster the City, a FREE, one-day, citywide event where you can learn more about making a difference in the life of a child living in foster care . Listen to inspiring speakers, ranging from national experts to ordinary people showing extraordinary love and sacrifice, and whose lives have been changed as result of their involvement on this critical issue. Choose one of four workshop tracks, specially tailored to your interests. Connect with others who are also in the process of thinking through how to take the next step.

Foster the City is about EVERYONE finding their role.

You heard us, everyone. Whether it is through providing support for a family, mentoring, mobilizing your community, or fostering and adopting, you have a role to play in ensuring that every child in foster care is supported and cared for. Check back often for the latest information, including speakers, workshops, and other special events! Foster the City is a special initiative of the National Council For Adoption and DC127.

FREE CHILDCARE: Bring the kids along to Foster the City! Our KidZone will be available free of charge for all children ages 1-10 while parents are attending sessions. We’ll have games, crafts, and yes, even two moon-bounces! Please be sure to register your child, including age, allergies, and special instructions. For any questions you can email us at info [at]
