88 cents of every dollar goes directly Walden programs

Every dollar donated makes our work possible—and 88¢ of every dollar goes directly to programs for our children and youth.

“Because of the ongoing economic fallout from the pandemic, 2021 holds financial uncertainty with state budgetary concerns and looming cutbacks. Please give if you can. Help us provide the programs and essential services our foster community needs in the months ahead. Thank you!

—Teresa Stivers, CEO
