During the month of May we celebrate National Foster Care Month and honor individuals like Alison Brown from the
National Youth Advocate Program (NYAP) who prides herself on the impact she has made in so many children’s lives here in Broward County. Alison has been a foster parent with NYAP for nearly three years. She quickly discovered that there is no greater love than becoming a foster parent. “As a single person, I didn’t know I could be a foster parent. But now I know that you can be gay, straight, single, divorced, renter or homeowner, what NYAP is always looking for are people that can literally be good to children in need.” Alison became a foster parent and a single mother to a 5-year-old boy. She is one of many to become a foster parent through NYAP, a national organization that has provided cost effective, community based services and support to children, youth and families since 1978.

Pack your bags because it’s about to get magical. Spend the weekend with thousands of women at mega dance parties, pool parties, after parties, hotel room parties, and any other parties you can get into. Girls in Wonderland kicks off on May 30th through June 2nd, but the effects of Disney Dumb lasts long after the final pool party.
Check out all of the events planned for the weekend and remember to say, “Haaay!” when you see us snapping your pictures.
