COVID-19 has changed so many things about our world. But it has not changed NACAC’s commitment to ensuring that every child has a safe, loving, and permanent family supported by their community. We need your help now more than ever to ensure that NACAC is able meet the needs of children and families and the parent groups and professionals who support them.
Right now, we’re doing a number of things to respond to the pandemic, including:
- Focusing our advocacy on increasing federal investments in child welfare to ensure states have the capacity to best support children and families involved in foster care, adoption, and kinship care
- Pivoting our in-person services for adoptive, foster, and kinship families to virtual support groups and online activities for kids and adding more one-on-one support of families who are struggling
- Transitioning our training, including offering a virtual NACAC conference and various online workshops for professionals, parents, and support group leaders
And of course we’re continuing our work to inform parents about adoption assistance and the adoption tax credit, support parent group leaders, expand support services for adoptive, foster, and kinship families, create training for parents and professionals, and connect families to the support they need.
To support NACAC’s work to ensure that children have a permanent, loving, and supported family, please make a donation today at whatever level is comfortable for you.
Together we will make a difference in so many lives.
