We know family matters. Yet, tens of thousands of children and youth in North America are waiting for families who can care for them. 

For more than 45 years, the North American Council on Adoptable Children (NACAC) has fought to ensure that every child find a safe, permanent, loving, and culturally competent family through advocacy, support, and education for families and professionals touched by adoption and foster care.  As a nonprofit organization, our work covers four key areas: 

  1. Support: NACAC provides support to more than 2,000 foster, adoptive, and kinship families in Minnesota and helps parents around the country connect to supportive services. We also help other communities create and enhance the support they provide to children and parents in adoption, foster care, and kinship care.
  2. Education and information: NACAC provides life-changing training and information to prospective adopters, adoptive parents, foster parents, kinship caregivers, youth leaders, and child welfare professionals on topics that help them ensure that every child and youth has an opportunity to thrive. 
  3. Leadership Development: NACAC offers support to adoptive, foster, and kinship parent groups and youth leaders, helping them to establish support and advocacy networks for their peers.
  4. Advocacy: Through community forums, trainings, policy recommendations, and education, NACAC works to achieve child welfare policy and practice reforms that will help children and youth find permanent families more quickly and help families receive the support they need. 

We can't continue this legacy of support and service without your help. Every dollar you give helps ensure that all children have permanent, loving, and supportive families.
