Waiting Children

Wendy's Wonderful Kids'

Wendy's Wonderful Kids is a signature program of the Dave Thomas Foundation of Adoption whose mission is to move children who are living in foster care into permanent, loving adoptive homes.

At the heart of this program is the belief that every child deserves to live in a safe, permanent family and that no child is unadoptable.

Wendy's restaurants, their customers and other partners raise funds for the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. The Foundation awards grants to local adoption organizations to hire recruiters who use child-focused recruitment strategies targeted exclusively on placing foster care children with adoptive families.

At the CAS of Toronto, there are three Wendy's Wonderful Kids recruiters who work full-time to find adoptive homes for children. These workers devote their time to finding families who can best match the needs of our children. Typically these children have been harder to find families for by virtue of their age or their level of needs.
