As a professional clinical counselor, i am aware of the long-term adverse impact of a lack of stability in a child's life. The dedication of the Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition to find Forever Homes that will provide this needed stability for children is inspiring beyond words! I have seen first hand how the expertly trained professional staff works tirelessly to protect and advocate for children. FACC is a Gift - to the children, their new families and the community as a whole.

I am a Donor and Enthusiastic Backer (capitalized because this should be a Proper Category) of the Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition. A mission to help children, most of whom really don't have someone fighting for them, is as high a calling as I can think of. You meet these kids and hear their stories of joy when that adoption comes through, or Extreme Recruitment has discovered a relative, and you just want it to happen again and again and again. You want to be a part of that happening. The Coalition makes that happen. THAT makes for a fabulous organization.

Whenever I have items to donate, I prefer to take them to the Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition. I believe in the services they are providing and I'm grateful to those that are able to help with foster care situations!

The little wishes campaign conducted year round is a chance for people who are not in the market to adopt a child but do want to help a child in need by granting "little wishes" that the child has requested.
This program serves the St. Louis Metro area and it wonderful to be able to help children who cannot help themselves.

Foster Care Coalition of Greater STL does a great service to the STL community by providing much needed counseling to both the children and to the prospective foster parents. FCC also found a way of fullfilling the needs and hopes of the children in the form of "Little Gifts". My wife and I fully support the FCC of Greater STL and we know that our donations get used for the greater good of the children who are in the greatest need.

I have been and continue to be a supporter of and cheerleader for the Foster and Adoptive Care Coalition. The 1/10/11 article in Time Magazine lauds the organization's creative and effective approach, referred to as "Extreme Recruitment, to placing hard-to-place kids with adoptive families. The goal is to give them "A place to call home." Every child deserves one.

I have been associated with the Foster Care Coalition of Greater St. Louis for over 10 years. As a professional with over 30 years experience working in related helping professions, I feel confident in my ability to evaluate an outstanding agency when I encounter one. FACC is such an agency. Staff members are not just highly skilled but demonstrate compassion & caring when others might have given up. They are tireless in finding creative ways to reach their goal of finding a forever home for each child. (Could there be anything more creative than Extreme Recruitment?). As a volunteer & a donor I could not be more proud of FACC.

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.

Through my volunteer work and through donation, I have gotten to know the passionate workers at FACC. They are dedicated to helping the children of St. Louis and work tirelessly on their behalf. They seek the best, most effective ways to place kids in positive environments. This organization deserves as much support as St. Louis can give them.
