Review for 'r kids Family Center, New Haven, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Several years ago I was in church when the minister introduced an individual who was involved with adoption and foster care services and housed up the street from the church in one of the poorest though vibrant neighborhoods in New Haven, Connecticut.

The executive director of 'r Kids Family Center, Randi Rubin Rodriguez, gave her talk and thus began my journey as a member of the Board of Directors.

As a father of an adopted son I was aware of the services the agency provided, but I had not experienced or felt the devotion and commitment of a small staff driven by their vision and determination until I became involved.

The news headlines of the day certainly do not speak to what so many individuals unselfishly provide for others and 'r Kids Family Center is one of those unsung agencies assisting others.
