Support CCAI and Partner in our Mission: Children in Families.

CCAI is committed to educating Members of Congress and other influencers about the needs of children without forever families. With your support and partnership, together we can provide opportunities for children, youth and families – people with real life experience in adoption and foster care – to advocate on Capitol Hill for federal policy reforms that positively impact children in foster care and orphanages around the world. You can make a difference!

To maintain the integrity of the organization and our work with government leaders, CCAI does not accept any government funding. The work of CCAI is made possible entirely through the generous support of individuals, corporations and foundations who share our desire to live in a world where every child has a safe and loving home. Through your gift to CCAI, together we can make a meaningful and lasting difference in a child’s life.
