NACAC promotes and supports permanent families for children and youth in the U.S. and Canada—especially children and youth who are or have been in foster care and those with special needs.
To achieve this mission, NACAC focuses its program services in four areas: public policy advocacy, parent leadership capacity building, education and information sharing, and adoption support.
NACAC is grateful for
the support of our
The Debra Steigerwaldt Waller Foundation
North American Council
on Adoptable Children ... because every child deserves a permanent, loving,
and culturally competent family
Support Children in Foster Care and Adoption by
Donating to NACAC on Giving Tuesday!
Together, we can make Giving Tuesday a great success for the families NACAC serves. Help us reach our goal of raising $10,000. Please take a moment to donate now (click here).
So what is Giving Tuesday? Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving on the Tuesday following U.S. Thanksgiving and the shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
Donate to NACAC on Giving Tuesday, December 1, to ensure that we can continue to advocate that all children and youth have a family and to support families who adopt, foster, or provide kinship care for children and youth in need.
But please don't stop there! If you value NACAC's mission and accomplishments, you can increase our reach by posting on your Facebook and Twitter accounts that you support NACAC and urge your friends and family to do the same! Sharing a link to the NACAC video and other posts from our Facebook page is a great way to help others understand what we do.
