Our Mission

RaiseAChild improves outcomes for foster children by building families through community partnerships.

Our vision is to be the nationwide leader in the recruitment and support of LGBT and all prospective parents interested in building families through fostering and adopting to meet the needs of the 425,000 children in the foster care system.


Every leading child welfare organization concludes that successful families come in a variety of configurations. That’s why RaiseAChild is committed to helping all people – regardless of sexual orientation – build families. Together, we can decrease the number of children in the system by increasing the number of qualified prospective parents.

I’m ready to make a difference


RaiseAChild promotes family building to a broad spectrum of prospective parents in order to solve the U.S. foster care crisis. That’s why we do not discriminate based on marital status, gender, age, or income. RaiseAChild recruits, educates, and nurtures supportive relationships, enabling everyone who would like to build secure, loving families.
