Foster Care and Exchange Programs

Long Business Description:

We are a national not-for-profit charitable organization that recruits foster and adoptive families for special needs children who have been waiting the longest for a “forever” family. We have brought together more than 6,000 children and families in our 37 years of service.

We are dedicated to finding adoptive families for America’s waiting children! We would be more than happy to answer any questions that you may have about the adoption process, registering a child with CAP, or our services. Our office hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00am to 5:00pm, EST. Please feel free to contact us.

Children Awaiting Parents strives to match families with children. We search for homes that will bring out the best in our youths – families that can unconditionally love and support them, regardless of the parent’s or the child’s sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.
