Mission & values
At the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, we believe that we have a responsibility to be the voice of foster care adoption, so that every child finds a family. We exist to find homes for children who are waiting to be adopted from foster care in North America. In the process, we work to inform adults who may have misperceptions about foster care adoption that keep them from getting involved. Through the money we raise, we are able to provide free educational resources, promote awareness, assist policymakers and employers, and support adoption professionals and agencies throughout the United States and Canada to ensure that every child finds a forever home.
Every child will have a permanent home and a loving family.
The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption will dramatically increase the number of adoptions of waiting children from North America’s foster care systems.
- Every child deserves to live in a safe, loving and permanent family.
- No child should linger in foster care or leave the system at age 18 without a permanent family of his or her own.
- Every child is adoptable.
