Wendy's Wonderful Kids
Wendy’s Wonderful Kids is making a difference for thousands of children—one child at a time. The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption awarded a grant to New York Council On Adoptable Children to hire Gloria Baksh, an adoption professional who implements proactive, child-focused recruitment programs targeted exclusively on moving some of New York’s longest-waiting children from foster care into adoptive families. Ms. Baksh works on a caseload of children the system has forgotten, ensuring she has the time and resources to give each child as much attention as he or she deserves.
Recently released research from a five-year evaluation of Wendy’s Wonderful Kids shows that children referred to the program are up to three times more likely to get adopted. Read the full research results.
