In 1989, a pioneering group from all corners of child welfare formed the Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition. As the crack cocaine epidemic gripped our community, the founders of the Coalition saw children languish for years in foster care. They believed in a different future, one in which no child grew up without the love and support of a family. Today, with 30 years of experience in system change and grassroots advocacy, combined with undiminished passion, their vision remains: "For Every Child … A Place to Call Home." Recognized by the New York Times and TIME Magazine for its groundbreaking and data-driven work in foster care and adoption, The Coalition is our region's leader in responding to the opioid epidemic that currently threatens our most vulnerable children. To help create permanency in every child's life, The Coalition focuses on two areas: 1) finding and training more qualified; and 2) providing support to families so they can meet these children's elevated needs.
