Join Child & Family Services for a short film, “Feeling Wanted,” spotlighting foster care. ┬áCharell Star Charleston narrates her own journey into and through foster care. She speaks honestly and powerfully about the abuse she suffered, a small act of kindness, and the continual process of learning to forgive her parents. An insightful and hopeful story.

Following the film, CFS will moderate an interactive panel and audience discussion and Q&A with former foster youth, foster parents, and social workers on healing and growing in a difficult system.

Admission to the film is free. Donations are gratefully accepted.
