Mission: Changing lives, building families, strengthening communities
Programs: Alabama pre and post adoption connection (apac) statewide services provided in collaboration with the alabama department of human resources office of adoption. The goal is to strengthen relationships within the adoptive families through education and support. Apac serves adoptive and foster families and the professionals who work with them. Efforts began in 2008 to recruit families for alabama's children waiting to be adopted. Adoption preparation classes are provided for adults interested in becoming adoptive parents for children with special needs. Home studies are prepared for eligible families, and ultimately, "waiting children" are matched with forever families. Family resource centers are located in birmingham, mobile, and montgomery.
focus families are preserved or reunified through crisis intervention, counseling and support services provided in their own homes. The goal is to help families remain together.
through conferences and camps, youth aging out of the foster care system are provided with daily life skills that will help them to successfully transition into young adulthood with the goal of becoming self-supportive.
