We ALL have love to Give!

New camapign to recruite LGBTQ Foster and Adoptive Families

The State of Connecticut values ALL families and as such welcomes and embraces LGBTQ families who want to provide foster and adoptive homes to some wonderful children in state care.

We ALL have love to give, and CT is fortunate to have many loving and caring LGBTQ families who are great foster and adoptive parents.  LGBTQ families tell us that fostering and adopting their children is a great joy and has added much meaning and joy to their lives

That is why the Department of Children and Families is working together with the LGBTQ community and supportive organizations to find LGBTQ families who want to bring great kids into their homes.


All children deserve the love and stability that comes from a family, and so we ask LGBTQ families to consider this option for adding children to their lives.


If you are interested in learning more about how to become a foster or adoptive parent to a wonderful child who deserves a loving home please call 888-KID-HERO
