I rec'd detailed assistance from the Educational Advocate, Leslie Lewis. I can now go to IEP's with the confidence of knowing what years of Leslie's experience taught me! She is still avaible with any questions or further assistance I might need. My child is diagnosed with Pervasive Development Disorder, ADHD and ODD. As anyone who has a child with special needs knows, getting the school district to do what they are legally required to do can be a challenge.
Understanding the IEP process, and working with the school district has allowed my child to have the resources he needs.

The Great!

As my husband and I tried to prepare ourselves for adoption, the Coalition provided educational forums with speakers that were invaluable to us. We learned, among other things, how adopted adults felt about being adopted as children and their positive or negative feeelings attached to adoption. We also were able to discuss questions and concerns with other adoptive parents. We learned so much to help us with raising our daughter in the best way possible. Knowledge is a powerful tool to have and the Coaltion provided us with first hand knowledge. In addition, if needed, babysitting was provided making it possible for some people to attend. Everything was done professionally. We were able to hear from psychoogists too. It's a GREAT organiziation.

This Coalition does what I believe in-It serves and protects children who need our support the most. I am a donor and I have also worked with the group to distribute car seats to the foster families. I especially commend their "extreme recruitment" program.

Incredible group of hard working people. Whether it is staying up to midnight for multiple nights making sure every child has a gift, to developing Extreme Recruitment so children can find family members, and a new home ! innovative, dedicated and extremely caring, you won't find a better group of children's advocates.

Such an amazing organization and you can tell that the employees of the Coalition really care about the kids they are helping. They are dedicated, hard working individuals with big hearts who do everything within their power to help these kids.

During their Make a Wish drive at Christmas,
it is amazing to see what long hours they work with smiles on their faces and their determination to see that every childs wish is granted.

This organization is truly an inspiration and an example for all nonprofits.

An amazing organization providing critical services to area children and families. As a case manager, I have utilized the multiple services and supports available to foster/adoptive parents and clients. I have also attended professional trainings through the Foster Care Coalition which I found to be informative and progressive in the field of child welfare.

The Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition provides support to and recruitment of foster and adoptive families. The Coalition is an agency that meets families where they are and continually reinforces that family belonging is powerful. The Coalition has an amazing group of employees, volunteers and board members that truly believe in the agency's mission and go above and beyond to see that it is put in action everyday.

I have recieved help from this agency since the adoption of my child.
Without this agency assistance, (educational training, support service,
hands on knowledge, and being there to help when I had a hard time with the development of raising a drug exposed child. Being a foster parent you
really don't know what you're in for. This agency helps so many peple like myself, and without this organization it would not alow people to foster nor adopt children who enter the forster care system. I would love to see the coalition receive any and all monies needed o continue services to the people who need.
