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
North American Council
on Adoptable Children ... because every child deserves a permanent, loving,
and culturally competent family
