This year, honor a special woman in your life on Mother’s Day by choosing a meaningful gift that makes a real impact.

Whether it’s your mom, your stepmom, your foster mom, your grandmother, your aunt, or someone else who has been like a mom to you, this Mother’s Day, honor all the ways she has made a difference in your life by making a difference in the lives of Virginia’s at-risk children.

Today there are more than 1,400 children of all ages in Virginia’s foster care system waiting to be adopted. Children who need someone to tuck them in at night. Children who want someone to help them with their homework. Children who deserve someone to champion their hopes and dreams. Just like she did — and does — for you.

Help CHS fulfill our mission to find all Virginia children the safe, permanent family they deserve by making a Mother’s Day donation.

When you make your donation in honor of your mom or mother figure, we will mail her a special note at the address you provide acknowledging the honorary gift you’ve made.

We can’t think of a better way to celebrate her than by helping a child find someone to call “Mommy” — for life. Can you?

Click on the DONATE button (at left) to make an online contribution, or mail a check to CHS at 4200 Fitzhugh Avenue, Richmond, VA 23230. Please include “Mother’s Day” and the name AND mailing address of the woman you are honoring in the online notes field or enclosed with your check.

Happy Mother’s Day!
