For Immediate Release
Dear Friends and Kidsave Families,
At Kidsave the health and safety of our kids, volunteers, families, and staff are paramount. Throughout this crisis, our Weekend Miracles and Summer Miracles Programs will continue efforts to find families for older children in foster and institutional care. Please see the following updates regarding our programs.
Our Weekend Miracles advocacy events are cancelled. DCFS has also requested that current hosts refrain from in-person visits with their youth and encourage hosts to stay in contact through phone, email, text, and video chat.
We are continuing to recruit and train families. Orientations and trainings will be virtual until further notice.
Our Kidsave staff continues to reach out to our Kidsave kids to let them know we are thinking of them and that we will bring our community back together as soon as it is safely possible.
April 7th Update: We are excited to share that we launched our first virtual event and will continue to hold small events every week by invitation.
November 3, 2021 Update:
Kidsave’s winter program has been postponed until the spring and summer of 2021. Due to increasing number of COVID-19 cases, the Colombian government has canceled all visit programs through the end of the year.
Please join us in our efforts on behalf of these forgotten kids and consider hosting in 2021.
Contact email@example.com for more information today.
Please take good care of yourselves and loved ones. We will remain in close contact as updates become available.
For questions, concerns or more information please contact our Communications Director Lauren Davis.
