2017 Highlights

THANK YOU for your generosity to Adoptive Families Coalition (AFC).  As a result of your amazing support, we had a fantastic year helping children with severe challenges. Here are some highlights of how we have together assisted more adoptive families: • CHILDREN’S CHAMPIONS– raised enough funds to secure our operations budget for the year to ensure 100% of public donations go directly toward therapeutic treatment costs for the healing of our sponsorship children. • MATCHING GRANTS– raised $35,000 through private donations and our annual Ball Bash fundraising event. The matching grants will be distributed in 2018 to assist the parents in paying for their child’s mental health treatment. • SPONSORSHIPS– added 17 new sponsorship families this year and helped raise funds for treatment not covered or partially covered by insurance. “AFC swiftly partnered with us to help us reach to our community as we asked for financial support. The work they do allows us to embrace a road to healing for our whole family. ” –sponsorship parent • RESOURCED FAMILIES– 100 families in crisis reached out to our team and we were able to guide and mentor them with compassion and understanding. As AFC enters 2018 we will passionately continue our work above along with increasing our efforts in advocating for improved insurance benefits and mental health/behavioral health services. All of this is possible because of you.
