Vermont Foster/Adoptive Family Association

Children's Activity Fund


The Children’s Activity Fund provides enrichment activities for children in Department for Children and Families (DCF) custody living in a licensed kin/foster homes or children adopted through DCF.



It is crucial that youth have opportunities to engage in enrichment activities; to build resiliency and to provide some normalcy in their lives. 

In 2016, the Children’s Activity Fund awarded over $9,000.00. This helped nearly 1,000 youth to participate in sports and become a part of a team, attend music, snowboard and horseback riding lessons, and take part in day/overnight camps.



With your support,  these children will have access to more enriching opportunities.  Donations are welcome and appreciated.
