Winter Kid’s Club – Monday February 20th: Jump and Journal!


February 20, 2017 7:30 am - 4:00 pm

Where: CHS Office, 4701 Market Street, Suite F. Fredericksburg, VA 22408

CHS Kid’s Club is a day of fun and adoption awareness for children who all share the experience of having been adopted or in foster care. This provides an opportunity to relax and relate to other kids and teens who have a shared connection. Our staff guides children through a mix of activities that are fun and adoption-focused, and encourage relationship and skill-building. Parents have the opportunity to provide their child with a day in an environment in which they feel included and where trained staff can ensure their needs are met in a healthy way.

President’s Day Kid’s Club – Monday February 20th
SkyZone and Journal Making!

Our group will spend the morning bouncing, dodging, and dunking our way through the obstacles and trampolines at Sky Zone. Fun for kids, teens, and adults alike, this trampoline park offers different zones and a challenge-by-choice atmosphere.
In the afternoon we will put our creative skills to the test. A local artist will be leading us through the process of creating our very own journals. With walls lined with supplies for decoration and personalization, this will be a fun way to spend a creative afternoon. Plus, each of our participants will come home with their very own masterpiece!

Fredericksburg Adoptive Family Movie Night


January 26, 2017 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Where: CHS Fredericksburg Office 4701 Market Street Fredericksburg, VA 22408

Children’s Home Society of Virginia invites adoptive families from the greater Fredericksburg area to join us for a movie night event!

Adults will be enjoying the film “ Paper Tigers,” a groundbreaking documentary by James Redford chronicling the stories of teens in a high school that chose to see their stories, not just their behaviors.

“Paper Tigers is a testament to what the latest research on childhood adversity is proving: that one caring adult can change the trajectory of a young person’s life”

Children will be viewing “Finding Dory,” Pixar’s follow up hit to “Finding Nemo.” Dory is a fish with a big heart and a less-than-stellar memory, who learns about family, friendship and how to reconcile a painful past.

Dinner will be provided!!
