Wendy’s Wonderful Kids

Proud Partner of Wendy’s Wonderful Kids

Arms Wide Adoption Services is pleased to be implementing Wendy’s Wonderful Kids, a signature program of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. This program brings children waiting to be adopted from foster care one step closer to safe, loving and permanent homes.

Through Wendy’s Wonderful Kids, the Foundation provides grants to adoption agencies. Then, agencies hire and train adoption recruiters who implement the Foundation’s evidence-based Child-Focused Recruitment Model. This model is up to three times more effective at serving children who have been in foster care the longest, including older youth, sibling groups and children with special needs.

Our Wendy’s Wonderful Kids Recruiters:

Currently, Arms Wide Adoption Services has two Wendy’s Wonderful Kids recruiters. Our recruiters work with smaller caseloads, ensuring they can provide these children with the attention, resources and support they need and find the adoptive families they deserve.
