“Today, there are five thousand children in the D.C. metropolitan area who are living in temporary care, waiting to be adopted. We need to make their dreams come true.”
These are the words of Janice Goldwater whose vision and determination have helped to conquer the challenge of finding permanent homes for children regardless of their age, race or health issues. Twenty-four years ago, she founded “Adoptions Together,” a non-profit agency to find “forever families” for hard-to-place children – and since then, her organization has found homes for more than 3,500 children and impacted thousands of families in the metropolitan D.C. area.
“Adoptions Together works to ensure kids in our community grow up in strong and healthy families,” Adoptions Together Board Member Tom Burton said. “The Taste In Potomac is one way we come together to have a great time supporting the mission of this work, and we need more folks to join us. I encourage everyone to come see great chefs, sample incredible food as local restaurants showcase their specialties, bid on wonderful auction items, and join a great cause.”
Office Furniture Loft was happy to support this cause by donating furniture and volunteer hours. OFL is very community oriented and is always in search of ways to help.
