Chicago Area Families For Adoption (CAFFA) is one of the largest adoptive parent support groups in the Chicago area. Member families include children of all races and ethnicities. We are dedicated to providing information and support to both adoptive and pre-adoptive families in the Chicago area.
CAFFA is pleased to invite incoming College Students to enter our Essay Contest in order to win an Educational Scholarship! This $1500 tuition scholarship will be awarded to one graduating high school senior student, who has been accepted to a 2- or 4-year college for the 2014-15 school year. The application and essay must be completed by May 31, 2014, and the recipient will be notified by the end of June 2014.
KALEIDOSCOPE Culture Camp is for children that joined their families through adoption or foster care, their siblings, & their parents. This exciting camp is for children entering Kindergarten through 10th grade. The camp programs offered are: African/African American, Chinese, Eastern European, and Latin American.
CAFFA is pleased to announce that we will begin planning our Spring 2015 conference shortly. Our event typically draws approximately 400 people, including prospective adoptive and foster care parents, folks already parenting through adoption/foster care, adoption professionals, birthparents and adult adoptees.
The day's features include:
Full Day of Workshops
Bookstore / Retail area
Breakfast & Lunch
We Need Your Help! This event is planned entirely by volunteers and is eagerly anticipated by the Adoption Community. In order to ensure another successful conference, we need more hands on deck to help us with planning, organizing, and executing the event. Participation can be long term (chairing a portion of the event, for example), or short term/ project based (brochure mailing, folder assembly, volunteering at the event itself, etc.).
If you think you may be interested, please send an email with your contact information to Shilaateducation@caffa.org. Please include your areas of interest and availability. All offers of help are genuinely appreciated.
