Help with Recruiting Adoptive Families
The North American Council on Adoptable Children (NACAC) was awarded Federal funds in 1998 to support President Clinton's Adoption 2002 initiative through activities related to adoptive family recruitment and retention. NACAC's website [no longer available] features articles with tips and techniques focusing on videoconferencing and targeted recruitment. NACAC also provides technical assistance to recruiters and conducts National Adoption Awareness Month activities. With supplemental funding from the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, NACAC prints and distributes posters featuring pictures of waiting children from across the U.S. It also publishes a National Adoption Awareness Month Guide.
