June, also known as Pride Month, is a time to celebrate diversity and provide support for members of the LGBTQ+ community. This is an important month for DePelchin as we express our gratitude for the LGBTQ+ families we work with and the individuals we serve in our programs.
Many members of the LGBTQ+ community, whether as individuals or as couples, have provided the safe and loving homes that all children need through both our foster care and adoption programs. Several same-sex couples have fostered and adopted multiple children through DePelchin.
Our families come in all shapes and sizes, and we are grateful for all who are willing to open their homes and their families to children who have experienced the trauma of removal from their birth parents.
“With DePelchin it is a family relationship,” said Joshua, whose family has fostered and adopted through DePelchin. “It isn’t a transaction — they are always there when we need them.”
DePelchin is grateful for our years-long partnerships with these families. We are also grateful for our supporters, all of whom make it possible for us to work with a diversity of children and families throughout our many programs.
