(More information on this can be found here: chsva.org/other-services/advocacy/).

To be successful in this, we need to hear from our adoptive families about their experiences. This will help us develop an advocacy agenda rooted in the needs of our families and the children they have adopted.

Please join us on Tuesday June 25 from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. at Children’s Home Society, 4200 Fitzhugh Avenue, Richmond, VA 23230, to share your experiences with our Policy and Research Analyst, Cassie Cunningham.
