Downey Side began in Springfield, Massachusetts in 1967 when Fr. Paul Engel, OFM Cap., a Capuchin priest, placed a seventeen year old boy into the home of Margaret Downey. Since that time, 6,000 children have been placed in permanent homes. By supporting this gala, you can help us to continue our efforts of finding families for children. Most of the children are 7-17. There are also sibling groups of 2 or more children, some are physically or developmentally challenged, most are emotionally challenged with issues of rejection, grief and loss. In the U.S.A., there are an estimated 500,000 children in foster care. About 150,000 of them are free for adoption and waiting for their "forever families." Many are moved from one foster home or agency to another and spend years in the system without their own family. They are at the mercy of strangers and the system. Downey Side is dedicated to the conviction that every child has the right to a permanent family.
