For too many of us, growing up in foster care meant we missed out on many of the traditions and privileges that most people find in their families. We're changing this and claiming the traditional Family Reunion as our own! Please join us as we celebrate our 2nd annual Alumni Family Reunion in sites across the country!
ALUMNI FAMILY REUNION: MAY 16, 2009 (in most sites)
Scroll down for details of the reunion in your area. The sites include Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Washington.
