Wendy’s Wonderful Kids
Coalition for Hispanic Family Services is pleased to be implementing Wendy’s Wonderful Kids, a signature program of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption that is bringing children waiting to be adopted from foster care one step closer to safe, loving and permanent homes.
Through Wendy’s Wonderful Kids, the Foundation provides grants to adoption agencies to hire and train adoption recruiters who implement the Foundation’s evidence-based Child-Focused Recruitment Model. This model is up to three times more effective at serving children who have been in foster care the longest, including older youth, sibling groups and children with special needs.
DTFA currently has 400+ Wendy’s Wonderful Kids recruiters who serve the U.S and Canada. Our recruiters work with smaller caseloads, ensuring that they can provide these children with the attention, resources and support needed to find the adoptive families they deserve.
