Hope For Youth

Wendy’s Wonderful Kids Program

A year ago, the world changed drastically, and in ways we couldn’t have anticipated. It has been an incredibly difficult time for everyone. But for children in foster care waiting to be adopted, many whom have endured abuse, neglect, countless layers of trauma and quite often the impact of racism, the effects of the COVID-19 crisis have been profound.

When the pandemic hit, the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption quickly adapted, in an aggressive pursuit, to serve children through the Wendy’s Wonderful Kids program without pause or interruption.

Because of the dedication of Wendy’s Wonderful Kids adoption recruiters, judges, partners and the Foundation’s supporters, more than 1,000 children have been adopted through the WWK program since March 2020.

Hope for Youth is proud to have a Wendy’s program, and grateful for the dedication of our adoption recruiters.
