Our Mission

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.

Our Work

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.

Thank You!

and culturally competent family

NACAC Announces New Director

Mary has a keen understanding of the child welfare field, particularly what policies and services benefit children and youth and the families who adopt, foster, or provide kinship care to them. She is an eloquent and passionate advocate for policy reform and empowerment of the children and youth directly affected by foster care and adoption.

Adoption Tax Credit Webinar

NACAC's adoption tax credit expert, Josh Kroll, recently presented a webinar on the federal adoption tax credit outlining the steps to file for the adoption credit. The focus is on filing for the 2015 tax year, but also covered applying for the credit for adoptions as far back as 2012. Josh explains what parents need to do to take advantage of the credit. The webinar recording is available for $15 for NACAC members and $20 for non-members. Payment is accepted by credit card or PayPal.
