What people are saying about Celia Center!
“I just wanted to give a big THANK YOU for allowing me to be in your Adopt Salon group. It was absolutely amazing, empowering and nothing that I have ever heard before. Something of this magnitude would be so beneficial for social workers and parents to witness, and listen to. I can see this becoming huge. Your influence, compassion, and empathy illuminate in every member of the group.”
-Leticia Ann V., M.S.W., ASW

“Our goal and mission for 2015 and beyond is to bring the constellation together so we can validate the foster and adoptee’s experience, honor the first mother’s experience and educate adoptive and foster families, as well as professionals about the experience, in order to gain clarity, ultimately heal and become a force together.” – Jeanette Yoffe, Executive Director
“….we, as the constellation of adoption and foster care, can be the change we want to see in the world.”
