Upcoming Events 

ROC the Day for Children Awaiting Parents! We invite you to ROC the Day for Children Awaiting Parents on December 1st, 2015 and be part of the global movement to give back to those in need on #Giving Tuesday. Help us meet our $5,000 goal! If CAP raises $5,000 during Roc the Day, one of our generous donors has agreed to match funds and donate an additional $5,000! Your contribution will help CAP find homes for older foster youth with special needs who have waited the longest to find permanent adoptive families.
