Dear Friends,

2023 marks 40 years of service for the Coalition. From our humble beginnings as a family-lead initiative to raise awareness about the needs of children lingering in foster care to our robust service offerings fueled by technology and passion, we continue to provide inspiration, information, and support to families caring for some of the most vulnerable children and teens in Wisconsin.

What I know for sure is the Coalition would not be a 40-year organization without the support of donors. We have continued to innovate and iterate because we have had thoughtful supporters who connected with our vision of a family for every child and support for every family.

The family we have highlighted in this issue (and the previous two) is one of those families who has worked to build a family around their boys, maintain connections with their birth family and siblings, and connected with us when  information and support were needed.

On behalf of our team and families we support, thank you for believing in us, supporting us, and helping us become the vital resource we are today.
