After working in child welfare for many years, it is refreshing and encouraging to see an organization so dedicated to providing children and youth in foster care a truly unique and empowering experience. Many people take things like summer camp for granted, along with their on-going relationship with siblings. Camp To Belong brings children/youth whose lives have been disrupted together for one week of family fun and provides year round opportunities for connections.
Their advocacy on behalf of siblings helps raise awareness of this important issue in the child welfare system.
The dedication and commitment of this mostly volunteer organization is incredible!
