We build futures. Adoptive Families of BC provides a pathway of support helping children and youth find permanent families. We help nurture the infants, children and the adults through support services, outreach, crisis intervention, and education. We are there for children, youth, and adoptive parents, helping them individually and collectively build successful permanent families of all types. We are here to bring them together, we are here for those who have yet to find a family, and we provide a path of support that is always here, regardless of age, to catch you when you slip as you move forward on your journey in a family or still seeking your permanent family. We teach, support and assist as you move forward looking for a family, learning to be a family or for the youth who move forward without. With us you never age out. With the help of philanthropy we can provide even better supports and services for infants, children, youth, potential parents, and permanent families.
