Get Involved!

Our program provides many opportunities for our community to support our youth in finding Forever Homes. Learn how you can partner with us!

Ways To Get Involved

The Idaho Wednesday’s Child Program is a grant-funded program that relies heavily on the donation of time, goods and services from giving members of our local communities around the state. You may not be in a season to adopt, but there are always ways for you to serve the foster and adoptive community.


Our program utilizes volunteer photographers to assist us in photographing the children we serve so that they can feel proud of the photos that accompany their online profile.

News Stations

Idaho Wednesday's Child is unique because we partner with the Treasure Valley news station KTVB and the Reel Hope Project to provide our youth with a production day they won't forget. This special day involves staff engaging in a fun activity aligned with the youth's interests and personality, all featured on KTVB as well as our partner's websites.

One of the ways that we make “Production Day” special for our kids is by providing them with a gift of some sort on the day of their production. The program is always in need of folks who wish to help out by donating toys, books, art supplies, gift cards, snacks, and other fun items in order for us to make gift bags for the children we serve.

Wednesday’s Child news production days could not occur without the generous partnering of local businesses in our communities who donate their time and allow our children to come to their venue and participate in fun activities while their news segment is being filmed.

Production Partners that Go Above & Beyond

Maggie O'Mara

KTVB Boise

Maggie O’Mara anchors "Wake Up Idaho" every morning on KTVB NewsChannel 7. You can catch the show from 5 a.m. to 7 a.m. Monday through Friday.

Maggie married a Boise native in 2008, and she has four sons and a daughter. She loves kids, and being a part of Wednesday’s Child is a dream come true.

The Reel Hope Project

There Is Nothing More Powerful Than a Story

The Reel Hope Project’s mission is A Forever Family for Every Child. They accomplish this by creating professional and personalized two-minute profile videos (reels) for children and teenagers in the foster care system who are awaiting an adoptive family. Each reel is provided free of charge and serves as a critical supplement to the otherwise limited information available to prospective adoptive families.

Headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota - The Reel Hope Project team is active in a growing number of states, including Idaho! They travel to reach waiting kids all across each of their focus states.

Given the nature of recruitment services, their team serves many teenagers, sibling groups, and youth with higher needs. The power of storytelling has proven to be substantial, and to date, over half of the youth featured in a Reel Hope Project video have been matched or adopted!

The Reel Hope Project’s partnership with Wednesday’s Child means that more kids are able to tell their story, and more families are able to meet waiting kids. Check out The Reel Hope Project’s Idaho Waiting Kids page here.
