2nd Annual Wesley House Family Services Gala


Perfect Parent

A national adoption recruitment campaign—a partnership of the US Children’s Bureau, AdoptUSKids, and the Ad Council—promotes adoption from foster care and raises awareness of the 112,000 children and youth who are waiting to be adopted.

Built around the theme “You don’t have to be perfect to be a perfect parent,” this annual campaign uses humor to illustrate that youth in foster care don’t need perfection; they need the commitment and love a permanent adoptive family can provide.

Become a Foster Family

Foster parents are a unique group of people and have one thing in common: they want to provide children with a temporary supportive home while they are separated from their families.

Wesley House Family Services recruits, trains, and supports foster families for Monroe County children who can no longer remain safely in their own homes and do not have relatives to care for them.

A message to our community and supporters around the state and country

Our children and families throughout the Florida Keys are in desperate need of your help.

Many foster parents, caregivers, adoptive parents, and staff have been displaced from their homes or have lost their homes completely.

There is a need to provide displaced caregivers short-term financial assistance to cover costs incurred not covered by state and federal assistance.

Our foster children have survived abuse, neglect or abandonment, and are now living through a real life nightmare.

The storm has not stopped the child welfare system from its urgent demands. Your financial assistance will go a long way to helping the foster care community provide services to families and help them rebuild and continue to provide the stability these children so desperately need.

Please give whatever you can as every dollar helps!
