Government

We work with civil servants of all types - and are always looking to discuss ways to highlight foster care, bring awareness to the children and families.

Governor 

Ralph Northam

"It takes all of us working together to help these children, to give them a chance – and I think you would agree with me that there’s power in every child, and we have to help our children reach their maximum potential.”

Shunda Giles

Richmond City DSS Director

"Government doesn't have all the answers. But the whole community, when it comes together, has the ability to address the "root" of the issues."

Mayor Levar Stoney

"My grandmother poured her hopes, dreams, and desires into me and I wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for her love and her belief that I can do anything I put my mind to. That is what each and every child needs."

Gretchen Brown

VDSS Senior Leadership

"Working with the faith community has been so natural. We think there is a line between government and faith-based, but we're all called to this service. It's just the "why" that's different."

Speaker Kirk Cox

"As a teacher for 30 years, I remember the kids who were in group homes and then the ones who were in families. The difference was just incredible. Families are so very important."

Delegate Emily Brewer

"This situation is an opportunity for the  community to plug in, because it’s not just about legislation; it’s about nurturing the whole child."

Danny Avula

Director, Richmond Health Department

"The reality is, the health and well-being of our community is dependent on different partners coming together to support kids in foster care."

Senator Jennifer McClellan

"I STILL need my parents and family even today. We need to make sure kids in foster care have the nurturing and support they need for as long as they need it."

Senator Monty Mason

"We need to spread the message to a broader segment of society that these children are just like everyone, they just need opportunities."

Senator Bryce Reeves

"As a man of faith, I know I am commanded take care of children. Children are the cornerstone of our society AND they are our future leaders."
