RaiseAChild.US, a new nonprofit aimed at encouraging the formation of LGBT families through adoption and foster parenting, was recently featured during the Huffington Post’s “30 Days of LGBT Holiday Giving.”
HRC has partnered with RaiseAChild on marketing and events across the country aimed at raising awareness about LGBT families, and breaking down the process for couples or individuals looking to adopt or foster. In addition, RaiseAChild works only with agencies that have achieved HRC’s All Children-All Families seal of recognition.
Hundreds of thousands of children are in need of a home, and there are same-sex couples across the country eager to open their hearts and start building a family. The work of RaiseAChild is central in helping those people take the first steps toward starting a family and putting a dent in the number of children across the country with no permanent home.
