All Children All Families Program

All Children - All Families is the only national program dedicated to LGBTQ+ inclusion in child welfare that provides resource development, technical assistance and training.

HRC Foundation's All Children - All Families provides educational resources, training and technical assistance on LGBTQ+ inclusion for child welfare systems. Since 2007, ACAF has been the go-to resource for agencies looking to truly welcome and affirm LGBTQ+ prospective parents and transform their service delivery for LGBTQ+ youth in out-of-home care.
