America’s child welfare system is broken. Of the estimated 400,540 children in foster care, about 104,230 of them are waiting to be adopted. And of those children who are waiting to be adopted, the average length of stay is two years and three months.
Families For All is a program of National Council For Adoption designed to inspire Americans to adopt, foster, or mentor a child in foster care. In every state including the District of Columbia, there are abused and neglected children who are in foster care through no fault of their own. Their dream is a loving, permanent family and our goal is to help them.
There are more than 55-million married-couple households and millions of qualified single adults who could provide loving families for these vulnerable children.
There is no better time than now to adopt, foster, mentor, or be an advocate for a child in foster care. Together we can provide families for all.
