At NACAC, we believe some of the best support an adoptive, foster, or kinship care parent can receive is from another parent. We provide support and resources to parent and youth group leaders and share information with adoptive, foster, and kinship families about groups in their communities.

As part of our work, we maintain a database with many adoption-related support groups from across the US and Canada. You can search the database by state or province to find resources in your community. To search by state or province, please type the state, province, or territory name in the search box below (just above the letters of the alphabet).

Please note that some groups serve a region or even state while others serve a smaller community.

Want to add a parent group that is not in the database below — or make a correction? Please use this form and we will make the change.
