Wednesday’s Child, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit organization, whose mission is to recruit adoptive families for older foster children, to help provide support for the children while they wait and to provide encouragement and support to adoptive families.
Over 30 years ago, our organization grew out of the WLKY weekly news feature which highlights older children considered unadoptable. Viewers wanted to help the children they saw, but the station could not accept donations. Wednesday’s Child, Inc is not part of the stations on air initiative; we are a completely separate entity.
We rely solely on private donations like yours, which help pay for grass roots recruitment efforts like the Shining Star Gallery and Adoption Fair (see Events) and things like school trips, music lessons and tutoring for the children, while they are waiting for a family. We hold events and information sessions to raise awareness in other ways as well.
Our number one goal is to help connect abused, abandoned and neglected children to a Forever Family.
