Angels in Adoption® Program


Since its inception in 1999, the Angels in Adoption® Program has upheld a tradition of celebrating the extraordinary efforts of individuals, couples, families, and organizations who work tirelessly to advocate for children in need of a family. Throughout the 21 years, over 2,700 Angels have received this special honor. CCAI also awards a select number of National Angels in Adoption® honorees. As the name implies, these are individuals whose contributions in the fields of adoption or foster care have an impact on a national scale.

Honorees are awarded at CCAI’s annual Angels in Adoption® Gala every fall in Washington, D.C. The gala is an inspiring evening and celebrates the role that a loving family plays in the lives of children.
