The Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition is a non-profit agency, founded in 1989 with the support of the United Way of Greater St. Louis.  

At our agency we do two things:

Recruitment:  We are one of the area’s largest recruiter of foster/adoptive homes because of our partnerships with the local media, including KSDK and 13 local newspapers.  

Resource Center:  Foster and adoptive parenting is a rewarding—but demanding—job.  We offer many supports to parents, including support groups, training, advocacy, newsletters, a resale shop, and the Little Wishes program.
The Coalition consists of 30 member agencies, including the area’s most-respected public and private agencies.  Our staff is made up of foster/adoptive parents and child welfare professionals with a broad range of expertise.  As a non-profit, 501(c)(3) agency, we are overseen by a Board of Directors.  The board is made up of a variety of corporate and child welfare representatives, many of whom are foster/adoptive parents.
