About Us

FosterAdopt Connect’s mission is to provide foster and adoptive children a stable, loving and nurturing family environment by support and advocacy for abused and neglected children and the families caring for them.

FosterAdopt Connect (formerly Midwest Foster Care and Adoption Association), was incorporated in 2000 as a 501c3 nonprofit social service organization. Rapid growth fueled by the needs of youth who age out of foster care and foster and adopted children and families has expanded the geographic reach and depth of the innovative programs and services offered. Yet at its core, FosterAdopt Connect maintains an “in the trenches with you” approach to serving kids and families.

Every kid deserves a childhood free of abuse and neglect within a family that offers love, stability, safety. FosterAdopt Connect actively monitors the changing needs of foster and adopted children and families within the community to identify gaps in available services. To fill these gaps, we search nationally and internationally for best practices to implement, and if none are available, we create innovative solutions to improve outcomes for the children and families within the community to identify gaps in available services.
