NACAC has strong beliefs and positions on many key policies and practices in adoption and child welfare, as outlined in the position statements below.

We encourage advocates to use these statements in their efforts to improve outcomes for children and families.

In some cases, the statements reflect the belief that a given law, policy, or practice is not in the best interest of children. Regardless of our position on a particular law, however, NACAC complies with existing law at all times, and will continue to do so.
