What is Walk Me Home

Walk Me the place I belong is the signature fund-raising and awareness event for foster care in America. We know not everyone can be a foster parent, but Walk Me Home is a great way to support the over 513,000 children in foster care.

NFPA Welcomes AdoptUSkids as a National Sponsor for Walk Me Home


Walk Me Home is a 5 K (3.1 mile) walk
that almost everyone can do.
