Angels in Adoption® Program
As a premier child welfare awards program, the CCAI Angels in Adoption® Program is making an impact on Capitol Hill and across the nation!
- Each year, over 140 deserving individuals, couples and organizations are honored as CCAI Angels in Adoption® honorees and are invited to travel to Washington, D.C. for three days of events. For many of the honorees, they would have never dreamed of being celebrated for opening up their hearts and homes to children in need of a loving family. Honorees leave Washington, D.C. with a renewed excitement and strong connections through networking to further their adoption and foster care work.
- Members of Congress and their staff alike are given an opportunity to engage directly with adoption advocates by recommending honorees to CCAI, celebrating their constituents and meeting with honorees during the Angels in Adoption® Program Hill Day event. This means that annually over 140 Members of Congress are able to hear firsthand from adoptive and foster families.
- The Angels in Adoption® Program and Gala has celebrated thousands of hometown heroes and dozens of celebrities who emphasize the importance of a loving family in the life of a child. This platform is used to generate positive media stories in both local and national press outlets. The Angels in Adoption® Program’s media attention has inspired individuals and families to consider how they can help to meet the needs of children in need of a loving family.
