Forever Families Project

Children available for adoption are featured weekly on CBS 12 through the Forever Family project. This Florida-based non-profit project leverages the power of the media to help children and teens in foster care find loving, adoptive families. Communities Connected for Kids became a Forever Family partner earlier this summer to highlight the adoption needs of local children in foster care.

All segments air on Tuesdays at 5 p.m. and again on Saturdays, then on NBC 6 Miami, NBC 6 Fort Myers, and WFTV Channel 9 in Orlando. To see previous segments, visit CBS 12. You can also catch each interview on our Communities Connected for Kids Facebook page.
