CERI on Tour

CERI Executive Director Connie Belciug has been on a tour of duty in India and Sri Lanka! The hands-on leader returns today from a 14-day schedule full of advocacy work on behalf of families struggling to stay together and youth in the foster care system.

Through women’s empowerment events, meetings with government stakeholders about improving the foster care system, and visiting with families in the Delhi slums to determine unmet needs, Connie is the embodiment of CERI’s work toward a stable future for families and their children. 

Visit CERI’s Facebook page for photos of Connie’s journey of service, and stay tuned for a more in-depth recounting of her travels when she gets back.

Thanks, Connie!  Keep up the great work!
