PROJECT 1: Film Series
In partnership with a children's home in Ecuador, this Better Together project draws attention to the challenges -- and the beauty -- of children living outside of family care.
PROJECT 2: Teacher Education
Many teachers are unaware of the unique needs of kids who were adopted or in foster care. We're working with schools to educate our educators about how they can better serve our special kids.
PROJECT 3: Trauma Training
Children who experience trauma may have life-long impacts. The research around this is very new and just becoming more understood, so we're developing training programs to share the latest research with caregivers and professionals.
PROJECT 4: Mentor Program
Becoming an adoptive or foster parent can feel daunting. Our Mentor Program matches prospective parents with experienced adoptive/foster parents, who provide support along the journey.
PROJECT 5: National Adoption Month
Each November we join with others around the world to bring awareness of and support for children who are waiting for their forever families. This month we're working with a leading designer to create brand resources that can be used by all advocates across a variety of social media platforms.
PROJECT 6: CHIFF Legislation
We recognize the need for systemic change in our legal processes in order to reduce the time that children wait for families. We work with a coalition of supporting agencies and organizations to lobby our Congressional leaders toward supporting the CHIFF bill.
