On July 18, Governor Bob McDonnell announced the statewide leadership team for Virginia Adopts: Campaign for 1,000, an initiative to match 1,000 children currently in foster care with adoptive families. NVTC President and CEO Bobbie Kilberg will serve as one of two state co-chairs for the initiative. Along with Kay Coles James, former Virginia Secretary of Health and Human Resources, she will work to highlight the effort and promote adoption around Virginia.
The Campaign for 1,000 is hosting regional kick-off events around the Commonwealth over the next two weeks, including one on July 30th at the Fairfax County Government Center. The events are designed to provide educational information for parents and families interested in adoption, and will also highlight some of the children across Virginia in need of a “forever family.” For more information about the events, please click here!.
