CULTURE FOR ONE FEATURED ON FOX5 NEW YORK NEWS

Watch this wonderful piece on our partner Culture for One! While foster care takes care of a child's material needs, we rely on Culture for One to help us improve the quality of life for children by providing cultural experiences and exposure to a broader world.

Forestdale's children have gone to the New York City Ballet, the Lion King, Hamilton, and many more! This helps them build confidence, life skills, and helps them develop new interests.

BLACK HISTORY MONTH CELEBRATION

Forestdale had a wonderful Black History Month Celebration attended by young and old. We had history lessons, mask painting, drumming and dance, all which highlight the contribution African Americans have made in the United States and around the world. It was moving and joyful, and both the staff and families left understanding the concept of "Ubuntu"-I AM BECAUSE WE ARE.

Thank you to all who attended and participated!

FORESTDALE ON CBS THIS MORNING

Our Executive Director William Weisberg discussed Forestdale's work with CBS News correspondent Bianna Golodryga for a podcast. Bill had the opportunity to speak about some of Forestdale's impactful work to strengthen families through partnerships, including Culture for One, Attachment and Biobehavioral Catchup (ABC) and the Mockingbird Family Model (MFM).

Bianna wanted to discuss foster care during the Holiday Season to draw attention to the vulnerability of some children, and discuss what people can do to help.
