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.

Photography

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 news stations across the state to provide our youth with a production day they won't forget. This special day involves our news anchors joining us for a fun activity that showcases the youth's interests and personality, all to be feautured on the evening news.

Donations

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.

Venues

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.

Introducing our viewers to these amazing kids is, by far, the most rewarding thing I've done in my career. Trying to connect them with forever families is a mission I am passionate about! Children in foster care have been on my heart since I was a child, myself. I grew up next to neighbors who adopted (through a foster-to-adopt program). I couldn't understand why those children weren't in safe, loving families. It didn't seem fair. All those years later, that touched my heart, and since beginning Wednesday's Child in 2004 in the Spokane/Coeur d'Alene market, that passion took flight! In 2007, I co-founded a charity that clothes children in foster care, and in 2015 because a foster parent, myself. These children and their stories will forever be a part of who I am... and I will not stop advocating for them!
