Our purpose is to promote self esteem and enrich the lives of children in foster care in Washington State by providing resources, opportunites and activites.
We are looking for businesses, associations, church groups, employee groups, service clubs, and individuals to partner with them on drives, fundraising and providing for special needs.
You can make the life of a foster child brighter with a donation to Capital Kids Connection. CKC is an all volunteer effort, so your donation directly applies to each child's special need. Your generosity is then leveraged to provide maximum goods and services. All donations are tax deductable.
Children in foster care are just regular kids, but life has been especially hard on them. They come into foster care because of abuse or neglect without the advantages of opportunities to enhance their lives. They are in care through no fault of their own. They need your help to have some of the positive experiences most children have as part of a normal childhood
CKC grants wishes for foster kids. Capital Kids has several programs it operates thru the year:
Christmas Connection: Foster youth fill out forms telling us 2 items they would like to have for Christmas, and we try to pair members of the community to these Christmas wishes to give the foster kids the specific items they would like to have for the holidays.
If you would like to sponsor a child, please contact us
Foster Parents: Fill out your 2016 Christmas Wish List Form
Little Wish Connection: $100 wishes for youth to go towards an item or experience of their choice. (For Example: summer camp, bike, prom dress)
Graduation Connection: Giving items to youth who are graduating and exiting forster care and needs items for their first home (For Example: Dishes, Bedding, Cleaning supplies)
Backpack Connection: Distributing backpacks and school supplies
Kitchen Table Connection: Mentoring youth who have exited foster care. The idea of KTC is to give ex-foster youth a place to come and sit down and feel like they always have someone who they can connect with, and get the help they might need, be it physical, social, emotional, or spiritual and connect them with community members and resources to help meet those needs.
Kitchen Table Connection Speaking Engagements: KTC offers several classes, workshops & motivational speaking available to social workers, mental health workers, community members, youth, or parents on:
