Mentoring. Fostering. Adopting. Donating. Time. Money. Voice. Support. Any age. Any skill-set. Any stage of life.

Something is always needed.

YOU can do something.

Come find out how you can participate in or support the work of caring for parentless and vulnerable children in San Diego County. This event features panels of adoptive and foster parents, and representatives from local organizations that facilitate caring for vulnerable children at all different levels of commitment. You will come away more than inspired–you will have direction for how to engage on the level that fits with your life right now.
