Coalition Team Members

Advisory Committee


Kathryn, who goes by Kat, has been a resident of western New York since 1999. She and her husband Adam lead a blended family that includes biological children, stepchildren, children adopted from foster care and via kinship adoptions.

Kat is a strong advocate for foster and adoptive parents in Niagara and Erie Counties and has worked with the Niagara County Department of Social Services to recognize outstanding staff, including transporters who play a key role in children’s lives while in care but whose role is seldom acknowledged.

Kat and her husband Adam, who live in Sanborn, were Niagara County Foster Parents of the Year in 2011.
