Mission: Another choice for black children, inc. Is a licensed organization with the purpose of finding adoptive homes for children in the foster care system. We recruit, prepare and support families in north carolina who adopt without charging any fees for our service.
Programs: Foster care and adoption promotion: the agency responded to 55 families interested in learning more about the foster care and adoption program. 35 families began the mapp training and we successfully secured homes for 20 children. Of this number, 14 children with special needs was legally adopted during the year.
adoption connection team: we provide post adoption support to approximately 20 children and their families. The support include respite, socialization groups, parent support groups, home visits, information and referral, consultatio, therapy, out of school suspension, financial and crisis intervention. As a result of these services, 97% of the families remained intact. Due to significant state and federal budget cuts the revenue generated through this program has been eliminated. Another choice pays for this service using unrestricted funds and donations.
another choice has contracted to run a homeless shelter for children. This program is not currently operable but due to unforeseen circumstances another choice is having to become a licensed residential provider. The program is expected to be fully operable in 2016.
