At America’s Kids Belong we’re dramatically improving the experiences and outcomes for kids in foster care.

We have 1 mission: FAMILY

Our coalition campaigns
leverage the convening authority of the government (e.g., mayor’s or governor’s office) to get businesses, faith communities and government working together to create collective impact in foster care.


Meet the Kids

Nationwide nearly one-quarter of kids in foster care are eligible to be adopted.
Our I Belong Project is a video storytelling initiative that gives these kids a face and a voice, and then helps connect many of them with potential adoptive families.

Whether you’re just beginning your journey to foster, are a seasoned foster parent considering adoption or simply someone with a heart for vulnerable kids, we invite you to meet some of the amazing kids right here in our community bravely pursuing belonging.
