About Us

Shining a Light On Those That Connect Youth In Care to Permanent, Loving Homes.

As a non-profit, our team is comprised mostly of passionate interns and volunteers who want to make a difference in the lives of foster children in Virginia. By increasing awareness and fundraising, we hope to better the lives of children and give them a sense of normalcy in their sometimes turbulent world.

Meet the Team!

How We Make a Difference

The foster care system can be a confusing and sometimes disheartening place. Through our fundraising and network of passionate volunteers, we strive to give children in foster care a brighter future, a sense of normalcy, and belonging. Events like the our awareness golf tournament, “Birthday Bags”, numerous holiday gift events, Thanksgiving Day family meal, and overnight camps, allow foster youth to get out, play, and learn new skills just like any other kid. Our Work program also provides resources to older youth who are leaving the foster care system. These 5,000 plus kids in foster care are our future and they deserve every opportunity to have a “normal” childhood in an ever changing environment.

Birthday Bags

The Birthday Bag is a reusable tote filled with complete party supplies, including theme decorations, paper goods, cake (or cake mix with frosting, candles, etc.) balloons, a personalized card, and gifts for the youth in care.  Bags can be mailed or picked up!

Advocacy

Connecting Hearts works tirelessly to not only connecting potential parents with licensed child placing agencies, but to advocate for children and families in the state of Virginia.  

Our Annual Golf Tournament

Each year, Connecting Hearts gathers foster care and adoption champions together to raise money that goes directly toward connecting youth in care with permanent, loving homes.  

30 Kids in 30 Days

Each year, Connecting Hearts partners with local news and social media outlets to highlight the stories of youth in care who are awaiting their forever families.
