We empower leaders in government, faith-based, business, and creative sectors to end the crisis for kids in foster care – state by state.
Youth who have aged out of foster care have become alarmingly vulnerable. Most of them have virtually no support system to lean on during this crisis. They need your help today!
HELP A KID
Social isolation is challenging for everyone, but it is especially difficult for kids from hard places and their families. Before COVID-19 hit, over 50% of foster families quit within the first year due to a lack of social support. If you know a foster, adoptive, or kinship family, reach out in the following ways to show your support!

America’s Kids Belong is a 501(c)3 organization that mobilizes government, faith-based, business and creative leaders around the goal of permanency and belonging for every child. Combining grassroots and “grasstops” methods, America’s Kids Belong runs innovative initiatives in states to help ensure that every child is in a loving home by: recruiting more foster and adoptive families, engaging wrap-around support for at-risk, foster & adoptive families along the way, and helping youth who have aged out without a family reach their full potential.

Are you a Faith Leader? You can use your calling and your community to recruit and support more than enough foster and adoptive families. We can equip you.
Are you a Creative Leader? You can use your skills and your platform to advocate for kids in foster care – giving them a face and a voice. We can train you.
Are you a Government Leader? You can run a collaborative campaign with the leaders above to sustainably improve the story for kids in foster care and for the families who care for them. We can guide you.
