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

Rating: 5 stars  

I interned at 'r kids in the summer of 2014 as a last-minute intern placement without experience in the field of social work or foster care services. The 'r kids team made my time with them a truly incredible learning experience. I loved learning from every member of the organization; they are such a committed, caring, and welcoming group of people, and it shows through with clients, families, and in the organization's energy. 'r kids does an astonishing amount of work, especially for a small organization; it is the cornerstone of a community of families that have come to them for support and stability, and 'r kids stays connected with those families as long as it takes to guarantee successful reunification or adoption, and even longer, which wouldn't be possible without the energy and care they bring to every case. 'r kids is constantly coming up with new and creative ways to strengthen the different communities it helps - the families it serves and the local New Haven community, as well as a wide-ranging community tied together by its powerful experiences with foster care and adoption. I am so grateful for the opportunity to have worked at 'r kids, and hope 'r kids will be able to reach even more people in the years to come.
