There are not enough parents to care for all of the children in the foster care system. You can make a difference.

BY ORLY LYONNE

RaiseAChild.US is a national nonprofit that promotes family building to a broad spectrum of prospective parents to solve the U.S. foster care crisis. They do not discriminate based on sexual orientation, marital status, gender, age, or income.

There are not enough parents to care for all of the children in the foster care system. Every leading child welfare organization concludes that successful families come in a variety of configurations. Research supports equality. Together, we can decrease the number of children in the system, by increasing the number of qualified prospective parents. You can make a difference.

RaiseAChild.US recruits, educates, and nurtures supportive relationships equally with all prospective foster and adoptive parents while partnering with agencies to improve the process of advancing foster children to safe, loving, and permanent homes.

Their vision is to be the nationwide leader in the recruitment and support of LGBT and all prospective parents interested in building families through fostering and adopting to meet the needs of the 415,000 children in the foster care system.

They promote family building by fostering and adoption to a broad spectrum of prospective parents through social media, radio, television, and outdoor advertising campaigns.

As foster/adoptive parents themselves, RaiseAChild.US Parent Advocates provide personalized support to help prospective parents navigate the foster/adoption process with their partner agencies. From orientation to training and throughout the child matching process, their Parent Advocates are available to assist with your concerns and questions.
