We prioritize our resources and efforts in 4 strategic areas:

adopt, adoption, family support, foster care

ADOPTIVE FAMILIES & FOSTER CARE

More than 400,000 children are in the U.S. foster care system; over 100,000 are waiting to be adopted.  Adoption is a wonderful journey – but often one with many questions and the need for specialized support.

CHILDREN’S HEALTH & WELL-BEING

Childhood hunger and poor nutrition can negatively affect overall health, cognitive development, and school performance.  If not addressed, food insecure children are likely to develop chronic disease in adulthood.

EDUCATIONAL SUPPORT

Barriers to education may be either academic or non-academic.  Needs are wide-ranging from specialized learning support and proper educational tools to the fundamental health and stability needed for the ability to learn.

ADVOCACY & CHILD SAFETY

12,175 US children die annually from unintentional injuries.  Nearly 80% of reported child fatalities are a result of abuse and neglect were caused by a parent.
