“Bottom line is, even if you see them coming, you're not ready for the big moments. No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it does.
So, what are we, helpless? Puppets? Nah. The big moments are gonna come, you can't help that. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's
when you find out who you are." - Joss Whedon

The AFFEC (A Family For Every Child) Matching Program

The Free AFFEC Matching Assistance Program:
  • Are you looking for a child over the age of 6?
  • Are you looking for a sibling group of 2 or more?
  • Can you parent a child with challenging to difficult behaviors?
  • Do you have experience with medical needs?
Opening your home to a child in need is certainly a special calling. If any of these needs meet your family heart's desire, our Matching Assistance Program could be for you. Matching Assistance is a password protected membership program with additional child listings, helping support qualified, current approved home studied families looking for available waiting foster children.

We understand that adoption workers, and caseworkers as well, have very high case loads and many simply do not have the time and resources to recruit for one family day in and day out. That is where AFFEC steps in.

Our goal is to work alongside families providing them with one on one communication, assurance and assistance in learning how to best represent themselves in their family biography. In addition, helping families by performing national child searches based on information provided within your approved homestudy and family biography.

We are NOT taking place of your adoption agency or your assigned adoption worker. They are extremely important to you during the adoption process. We work alongside you as part of a team to help identify a child or sibling group available within the foster care system in the United States.
