Make a difference, one child at a time.
On any given day, there are nearly 4,000 children and adolescents in the foster care system. The need is great, the reward is greater. These children and adolescents who are ready to become part of a family with caring adult/s who will be patient while they learn how to trust again and will help them reach their potential.
Klingberg’s Therapeutic Foster Care Program serves children and adolescents 6-18 (with some exceptions) of all gender, race, cultural and religious backgrounds, and orientation. Approved families partner with Klingberg and CT Department of Children and Families (DCF) to offer a safe environment to heal from the pain of abuse, neglect and trauma.
On August 19th, Charlie Van Beveren, part owner of Max Pizza II located at 79 Shuttle Meadow Ave, New Britain was the proud recipient of the Certificate of Appreciation Award for being a family friendly company that continues to support Klingberg Family Center’s Foster Care and Adoption Programs.
