Adoption Exchange Advocates for Families
You are here
More than 107,000 children in the United States are currently waiting for adoptive parents to release them from an uncertain future while living in foster care. The Adoption Exchange is one of the many dedicated organizations aiding marginalized children and the MAXIMUS Foundation recognized this dedication by providing grant support in the spring of 2013.
The Colorado-based Adoption Exchange is dedicated to helping waiting children find safe, loving, permanent homes. In addition, the Adoption Exchange assists adoptive families by providing resource information and referrals, support, advocacy and education. They recruit families for children who have survived abuse and neglect, support adoptive families throughout every phase of the adoption process, and train child welfare professionals.
“One thing that really stood out was the individual attention each one of the kids get,” shared Laura Hinchey, an ambassador for the MAXIMUS Foundation. “It really is just the basics that they want and need; a mom and dad, a house, and maybe a dog.”
Since 1983, The Adoption Exchange has connected more than 6,674 children with families. With funding from donors like the MAXIMUS Foundation, the Adoption Exchange helps change lives, create and sustain stable families, and give hope to those who need it most.
