We are the Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition, a diverse network of professionals, foster & adoptive parents, social service agencies, and community leaders driven by a shared vision for our community in which every child in foster care has an opportunity for a healthy, successful life. We accomplish this in two ways - by finding safe, nurturing homes for foster children, and by providing a support system for foster & adoptive families so they can fulfill the physical, mental, and emotional needs of the children in their care.

Our Family Means Forever campaign goal is to raise $80,000, funding 16 adoptions through our Extreme Recruitment program. That's 16 children who will know the love and support of a forever family. And best of all? Extreme Recruitment only works with the hardest-to-place children, namely older youth, sibling groups, and kids with special needs. These are the kids at the highest risk of "aging out" of foster care with no support, at which point they are statistically very likely to end up unemployed, homeless, or incarcerated. You can help rewrite their stories on Give STL Day.

What makes us unique?
We never give up on kids. Our groundbreaking adoption and support programs find families for children when all other methods have failed.
We never duplicate another nonprofit's programs. Everything we do fills a community gap.
We serve all foster & adoptive families, no matter where they live in Metro St. Louis.
We save taxpayers more than $8 million each year with our innovative services.
We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities so that everyone has a chance to impact the lives of children in foster care.
We rigorously test all our programs for efficiency, ensuring that our supporters get the best possible return when they invest in our work.
