New Haven Visitation Project

The New Haven DCF Project was completed in the Fall of 2021. Along with 4 incredibly talented artists, Fostering Family Hope transformed the visitation center at the New Haven Department of Children & Families office. With the support of local community members and churches, the New Haven office is now filled with laughter and interactive play between children and families.
