Community Involvement

Community Involvement with Adoption Rhode Island comes in all kinds of ways. We are grateful to have so many members of the community helping us help the children in a variety of ways. And although we can not list them all, here are a few examples of how community partners and friends of Adoption RI are involved…

National Adoption Month Annual Statehouse Celebration

Hundreds of people came out to help us celebrate National Adoption Month, honor several community members, organizations and DCYF social workers for outstanding efforts in the world of Adoption — and witness the unveiling of the 15th Annual Heart Gallery, dedicated this year in memory of Nick Cardi, Jr.!

We at Adoption RI are thankful for all of the amazing kids we work with, the families, pre and post-adoption, with whom we have the privilege of being involved, adoption professionals, legislators, advocates and supporters who help us help children and families find a better tomorrow as a result of adoption and/or permanent connection. If you weren’t able to make it, you can watch the entire to the speaking program, courtesy of RI Capitol TV at Capitol TV- ARI State House Event,
and read about our honorees in the evening’s program to the right.


Golf Tournament Auction Donations Help Raise Money and Awareness for our Cause!
Many thanks to NESN and Paul Bermel for, again this year, donating a Bruins Package to be part of our auction at our Arpin Golf/Tuesday’s Child Golf Tournament. NESN has offered this exciting package, which includes 2 tickets to a Bruins game and a tour of both the NESN intermission set and the broadcast booth, for over 5 years now!

Colleen and Andrew Deluski, pictured here with NESN’s Bruins hosts Dale Arnold and Billy Jaffe, were the lucky winners of this memorable experience, which raised quite a bit of money for Adoption RI. Gladly, they were able to see a win as the Bruins beat out the Senators 5-2 this past Saturday.

Thanks again to NESN, as well as to Colleen and Andrew for caring about kids in care!
