Sean is the most kind 14-year-old, looking for a family to love and who will love him back. He’s artistic, athletic and is super fond of dogs.
Consider making Sean part of your family!

Kaylee "wants to get to know you. She wants to know that you are a good person, that you're going to hear her and see her. She's very open, so she expects that level of respect." A loving family can adopt her through the Adoption Center.
It hasn’t worked out for Jamil so far, but this 12-year-old is full of hope in finding his forever family.
Maybe you can spread the word with my story and make it happen for him.

Huge shoutout to Nerd Street Gaming: The Block, in Philadelphia, the amazing hosts of a taping yesterday. They made sure Rashad left with a big smile and so many goodies! They gave him a sweatshirt, short & long sleeve tees, hat, scarf, free play cards and snacks!!

Rashad also got a great insider's look at an official gaming facility, where huge esports tournaments take place with people coming from around the country and overseas! Rashad had a great time!

The support we get from our generous donors makes days such as this possible for youth like Rashad. Please consider coming to our 50th Anniversary Gala or making a donation, to allow us to provide these experiences for our youth -> https://ac50.givesmart.com/

On January 29 we held our Delaware Virtual Matching Event! It was an amazing day where families and workers got to know a little bit more about each other and youth ready for adoption.

As you can see from the picture, the event was virtual. To compensate, our Older Youth Project Manager, Gia, created an Everyone Has a Voice Video which highlighted each youth that participated. Families also had a chance to chat with each other, as well as the workers. Overall, a great way to spend a Saturday!

Why do our youth need a mentor program such as our Anchor Project?

Adulthood is hard for everyone and can be even more difficult when one may not have any guidance on how to handle some of the stronger emotions that can be experienced. One of the aspects of the Anchor Project is helping our mentees develop life skills that we hope will help them cope with strong emotions, stress, and anxiety. Our Mindfulness Series will equip them with simple tools they can use before or after a long day, like yoga or journaling, to something they can use on the spot, such as breathing exercises and body scans.

How can you help? Your donations to our wish list will help guide our mentees into adulthood, where they can take on the world confidently!

Exciting night last night – our Anchor Project mentors and mentees went to the Sixers’ game. After everyone was given their rapid tests, they were given early entrance to the venue to watch the team warm up and received a shout out on the Jumbotron during half time!

The Sixers may have been defeated, but our crew was happy to spend time with one another.
