November Is National Adoption Month
As the holiday season approaches, we are reminded that the gift of family is at the top of our personal list of blessings for many of us. Here at Catholic Charities, our Adoption and Specialized Foster Care Programs are designed to match loving families with children in need of a loving home.
To accomplish this important goal, we need the help of people like you, and we ask you to please consider a gift to help provide the opportunity for children to grow and thrive in the security of family’s love.
Our Adoption Program provides resources to adoptive parents who are interested in adopting a newborn infant or in some cases matches the family with a child or group of siblings engaged with the Pennsylvania Statewide Adoption Network (SWAN). Our Specialized Foster Care Program places children who have been separated from their families by the court system into loving homes. Often times, adoption is an appropriate course, and Catholic Charities assists many foster parents in adopting their children and providing a permanent caring environment.
This type of work is expensive, and we need your help. Many agencies offer adoption and foster care services, but Catholic Charities provides help and creates hope for all individuals (of all faiths) regardless of their financial situation. In addition, the revenue we receive for our work does not match the cost of the services we provide. In order to continue our services, we rely heavily on the generosity of people like you who understand and appreciate the importance of these efforts.
There are thousands of boys and girls who want one thing more than anything else – a family. Money should not be the reason children can’t find loving parents. If we had the resources we need, we could bring more children and families together.
Won’t you please help?
November is National Adoption Month, a time to raise awareness and generate support for programs like Catholic Charities that bring adoptive children and families together. This month, please consider a donation to help support our important work. Your gift will be used to provide the resources we need to help build permanent, caring families in our region. All gifts, regardless of the amount, will make a difference. And you can take pride knowing that you are a part of something truly special.
