Communities Connected for Kids is following the Coronavirus situation closely and is prepared to respond swiftly to any developments.

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.
