There are many difficulties and falls that comes with being foster parents. You all have stuck through the good and bad times with us for the best of the children. That does not go unnoticed. Thank you for your hard work, dedication, and determination to provide the children a better life and being a part of our Klingberg Family.
Thank you for showing up even through the most challenging days. You are appreciated!
Foster parents are the Jewels of our crowns. Thank you for all you do.
We have the BEST foster parents at KFC. Thank you all for being so kind hearted, patient, understanding, empathic, and always having the willingness to help. You are appreciated!
Our Klingberg Foster Parents remind me of super heroes!
For all the long nights, medical appointments, PPT meetings, walkthroughs and meetings with state providers. Thank you for all that you do.
Thank you for opening your hearts and homes to raise resilient children to strive.
We live in a world in which we need to share responsibility. It’s easy to say ‘It’s not my child, not my community, not my problem.’ Then there are those who see the need and respond. I consider those people my heroes.
The most selfless decision is to be a foster parent as you will never get back all you pour into the child; but know although they may not be able to say it every ounce of energy you put in is appreciated and impactful. Thank you for all your selflessness and being part of our family.
May is Foster Parent Appreciation Month
May is Foster Parent Appreciation Month, a time to honor and celebrate Klingberg’s
foster families and foster families across the state who provide safe care of vulnerable
children. Klingberg’s foster parents are committed to providing a healthy
environment to help youth thrive and make positive changes. Foster families work to
reunify children with their birth families or stabilize them until a permanency resource
is identified. Foster families provide a stable home and strong connections to their
school, friends, siblings and other family members and more. I thank every Klingberg
foster parent for their commitment to keeping children safe in loving homes during a
time when children need them the most. Thank you for your dedication.
May is also a time to encourage families to become licensed foster families. Foster
homes continue to be needed. Making the decision to become a foster parent is a
serious one that can make the difference in the life of a youth.
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.
Max’s Pizza II is a local home grown company that takes pride in their ability to provide a large and varied selection of food for companies and individuals alike. They have provided catered food for Klingberg events for many years and the variety of ice-cream flavors are a delight for kids and adults.
Max’s Pizza II has continued to provide Klingberg Family Center’s Adoption and Foster Care Programs an avenue to increase attention for the need of foster and adoptive parents in our community. Nicolin Carr, TFC Recruitment Specialist, presented the award to Charlie and stated “their support of our foster care program throughout the years has not gone unnoticed and we are grateful to Max’s for helping to bring awareness to the general public about the need for foster parents.”
Charlie and daughter Malena were present to receive this certificate which they say will take center stage in their place of business. Please take time to stop by Max’s Pizza II and partake in some of their delicious foods and check out the certificate when you are in the neighborhood.
