Success Story

Why We're Here:

In North America, tens of thousands of foster children and youth who can no longer live safely with their families are waiting for a permanent, loving family. NACAC promotes and supports permanent families for children and youth in the United States and Canada who have been in care - especially those in foster care and those with special needs.

About our Adoption Support: "Thank you, thank you, thank you... when we wanted to add to our family again through adoption, I found myself looking on the internet for more sources and voila!!! NACAC was there to help."- adoptive parent.

About our parent group training: "They have been tremendous support for me personally and as a leader." - parent group leader

About our Adoption Subsidy Resource Center: "I cannot begin to express how helpful NACAC has been to my family... resources from your agency have made all the difference in my daughter getting access to care, academic support, and counseling services she needs and will need for years to come." - adoptive parent

From an adoptive parent and professional: "NACAC is an introduction to innovation, progressive thinking, and forward-moving by people who are always looking for ways to do what we do better, faster, and smarter; NACAC is a beacon of hope, a statement of steadfast faith, and a promise of unconditional love for children of all kinds..., and finally NACAC is a force drawing us together to keep moving forward until every child has at least one adult completely committed to them for life."
