Fundraising & Administrative Percentage

Foster Parent Cathy Brodin has opened her heart and home to children in Little City�s foster care program for over 6 years. When two of her foster children, as sister and brother named Amber and Austin, needed an adoptive family, Cathy knew she had to follow her heart and become their forever family.

Cathy positively glows when she describes her children, �Amber and Austin bring me so much job. I feel so fortunate to have been able to adopt them. They are beautiful and smart, and have great personalities. I just love them.�

Cathy is enthusiastic about the Little City foster care and adoption programs as well. �Little City is a great agency. I can�t say enough good things about the programs. The people there make sure you get all the help you need for the kids. Best of all, Little City supplies hours of training to help you do the right things.�

Cathy says she knows people who have worked with agencies other than Little City and they didn�t get nearly the support she has received. �It�s jus the best agency when it comes to delivering the assistance that foster and adoptive parents need to be successful,� she says.
