Adoption Q&A Coffee Break


September 26, 2018 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Agora Downtown Coffee Shop, 520 Caroline St Fredericksburg, VA 22401

Join Agora Downtown Coffee Shop and Children’s Home Society of Virginia for an informational session about issues facing adopted and foster care youth.

Have all your questions answered about how to adopt a child from foster care, as well as the challenges associated with this process.

As of August, 2018 there were just over 1600 youth in foster care in Virginia with a permanency goal of adoption, many of whom are still waiting to be matched with a family who will commit to a lifetime of love, care, and support. Stop by for delicious coffee and pastries and stay to learn about preventing Virginia’s youth from aging out of the foster care system. Agora Downtown Coffee Shop will generously donate a portion of proceeds during the event to Children’s Home of Virginia to help us with our mission of building strong permanent families and lifelong relationships for Virginia’s at-risk children and youth.

For more information, contact Anna Yates, post adoption social worker, at or (540) 226-0583.
