Upcoming Events
Consider adopting older youth. In Pennsylvania, youth can remain in foster care until the age of 21. Many of the matching events listed on this page provide families with opportunities to meet older youth in care who are in need of permanency. Even though many of these youth are on their way to young adulthood, they continue to need permanent connections and a family to support, love and care for them. To learn more about this group of older youth please visit the Waiting Children section and use the Search Kids tool and search by age range 17 to 21.

We celebrate upcoming birthdays for: Todd C01AB03, Rocco C04AA43, Sawyer C06AW76, Arlo C06AX49, Luke C07AD92, Natasha C09AG97, Adam C12AA02, Bryson C13AA52, Onaleze C21AA64, Craig C22CG04, Jayson C22CG20, James C26AA16, Joseph C32AA48, Hide C36AC63, Aleah C37AA69, Marissa C48AD58, Bryce C51CD14, Chino C51DS00, Brayden C54AB11, Kamryn C63AB06, and Victoria C67AD95.
