A fun day of activities and good food. We are accepting RSVP’s for both children and families to attend.

This event is not a matching event in the traditional sense of the word. Potential adoptive parents, will be asked to mingle with the children, enjoy lunch and other activities with them, which gives them the opportunity to interact with youth who are in out-of-home placement. Some of the children present will have a goal of adoption but other children will not have that as his/her goal.  

Some of the activities we have planned include:

•            Photo booth

•            Games

•            Face painting by Color Me Up

•            Magic Steve – Balloon Artist

•            Food!

•            Snacks including fresh popcorn and cotton candy

•            And more.

The purpose of this event is to 1.) Give the children a fun day with no pressure to perform or act…as far as they know, it is simply an event to celebrate National Adoption Month; 2.) And to give potential adoptive families exposure to children of varying ages and personalities to hopefully eliminate some of the fear of adopting an older child.

Should you have any children or families who you would like to attend, please contact Danelle Stone at 814-456-2091 or email at dstone@cccas.org  or Melissa Scobey at 814-866-4581 or email at mscobey@fsnwpa.org   to RSVP
