We Never Outgrow the Need for Family—Just Ask Us.

For over two decades, National Adoption Month has been celebrated across the country. Many national; State;  local agencies; and foster, kinship care, and adoptive family groups will arrange programs, events, and activities during the month of November to raise awareness for children and youth in foster care who are waiting for permanent families.
Through a partnership with Child Welfare Information Gateway and AdoptUSKidsexternal link, National Adoption Month is an initiative of the Children’s Bureau with a goal to increase national awareness and bring attention to the need for permanent families for children and youth in the U.S. foster care system. 
The ability to secure life long connections for older youth in the system is critical for their future and over all well being even though it could sometimes be a challenge to talk about. This year, National Adoption Month focuses on the importance of matching permanent families for thousands of 15–18 year olds in foster care who are currently less likely to be adopted, often because of their age, and who all too often age out of the system.  
Join us this month as we help spread awareness to the community!
