The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, believes we have a responsibility to be the voice of foster care adoption, so that every child finds a family. They exist to find homes for children who are waiting to be adopted from foster care in North America. In the process, They work to inform adults who may have misperceptions about foster care adoption that keep them from getting involved. Through the money they raise, they are able to provide free educational resources, promote awareness, assist policymakers and employers, and support adoption professionals and agencies throughout the United States and Canada to ensure that every child finds a forever home.
