what's happening

Today, more than 400,000 children are in the U.S. foster care system. 100,000 are eligible for adoption. As a society, we’ve promised these children that we would find them safe, supportive homes.

Tragically, each year 23,000 children become too old for the foster system and leave with no family supports. These children desperately need the love and sense of belonging that can only come through adoption.

America’s Kids Belong generates broad awareness of the crisis in the US child welfare system and facilitates meaningful engagement that leads to massive change.
