Walden Family Services
Investing in children is the only investment that never fails.
Founded in 1976, Walden Family Services is a nationally recognized foster care, adoption, and youth services agency that shares Henry David Thoreau’s vision for personal growth, our individual rights and responsibilities as members of a community, and a life that celebrates the richness of natural diversity.
Their staff of highly trained social work professionals and licensed therapists support birth, foster and adoptive families and the community in caring for more than 265 children and youth—many who have physical or developmental disabilities, behavioral or mental health challenges, who identify as LGBTQ, or who are part of large sibling groups. Preparing families to care for children with special health care needs or disabilities allows kids to grow up in families, rather than in hospitals, skilled-nursing facilities, or group homes and congregate care facilities. Most important, living with a family helps children and youth build relationships, which are the foundation for learning, social-emotional well-being, and successful, fulfilling lives.
KicKee generously donated nearly 450 loveable and indulgent items, including tops, bottoms, footies, coveralls, onesies, outerwear, training pants, PJ sets, layettes, hats, newborn gift sets, dresses, bloomers, rompers and swaddles for the foster children cared for by Walden Family Services and even a little extra something special for the moms!
