About Us

Our inspiration comes from the belief that "There are no unwanted children… just unfound families”. From that perspective we provide the following free adoptive services: Public Awareness & Recruitment, Information & Referral and Matching Events & Advocacy. We are here to bring attention to the need for adoptive homes for children living in foster care. We help agencies recruit on behalf of their waiting children. We seek to match prospective adoptive families with appropriate adoption agencies.

Success Stories

Lanier and Adam worked hard to show her love and accept her as their own.  With much dedication, support, and perseverance, they have proven to Alexis that they are worthy of her love.  Lanier empathically told Alexis “this is your last stop”.  Since then, Alexis has dramatically improved in all areas, including school.

Achieving Connections

In February, the National Adoption Center, in partnership with the State of New Jersey, will complete an eighteen month program whose goal was to achieve permanent connections for older youth in foster care. NAC’s outstanding Program team worked with a caseload of twenty youth and developed teams of support for each child by unearthing past relationships. In some cases it was a teacher, a principal or even a coach that at some time was in the child’s life. These teams met monthly and provided much needed support for youth who were about to age out of care without a permanent connection.
