Our partners include independent, non-profit, child-placing agencies, the CT Department of Children and Families, other family service organizations, corporate partners, foster/adoptive and kinship families, as well as community leaders in foster care and adoption. We all work together to identify new family resources for CT’s children in care. Resources are identified by conducting information meetings or “Open Houses” in towns in the northwest region of CT as well as by member attendance at community events. We also assist agencies that support current foster and adoptive families by staging events designed to promote family fun and cultural sensitivity. One of our signature events is a yearly Family Fun Day at Quassy Amusement Park. The community collaborative also sponsors an annual scholarship dedicated to the memory of Kay Wyrick and given out to a graduating high school senior of color who is currently, or was, in the CT foster care system.
