To prioritize

America’s kids!

Created by Lynn Johnson, former Assistant Secretary for Health and Human Services – Administration for Children and Families, and now CityServe Vice President of Children and Youth Initiatives, The ALL IN for FOSTER ADOPTION is a national call for partners in every state to commit to being ALL IN for finding forever families for the

waiting children in the foster care system.

Every waiting kid in the foster care system is at risk of ending up in another system–juvenile justice, homeless, or trafficking.

We can take 122,000 down to ZERO children in foster care when everyone decides to be ALL IN.
