A Family For Every Child is a nonprofit organization located in Eugene, Oregon. AFFEC’S mission is to find loving and permanent families for every waiting foster child.
A Family For Every Child needs a Child Recruiter volunteer/intern who will work with the Program Supervisor to make an outreach recruitment plan to engage caseworkers in other states, Heart Galleries, and photo listings. The objective is to build relationships with others, build our public child listing website, and recruit for more children nationwide. The Child Recruiter volunteer/intern will work to build relationships with states, counties, agencies, social workers, and recruiters nationwide in order to form new relationships and expand currently existing relationships.
Under the supervision of the Program Supervisor, the volunteer/intern will:
Develop an outreach plan and timeline.
Develop processes for contact and follow-up. Enter all contacts in database with a follow-up plan.
Develop a checklist for putting children on the website with biographies and best photo possible.
Identify barriers and brainstorm solutions.
Make a plan to use our website, social media, and targeted email outreach to make new contacts.
Build email templates, press releases, PSAs, and other marketing tools.
A Family for Every Child is dedicated to finding loving, permanent families for every waiting foster child." Our intention is to develop programs that assist special-needs/challenging-to-place foster children in finding their own Forever Families.
A Family For Every Child, a nonprofit organization, was started by Christy Obie-Barrett and dozens of dedicated and passionate volunteers. In 2006, AFFEC was formed and developed into an organization focused on finding permanent and loving adoptive homes for Oregon's waiting children. We started with our first project called The Heart Gallery in November, 2006, and now we have blossomed into ten incredibly successful programs. None of this could have occurred without the wonderful support from thousands of volunteers, sponsors, in-kind donors, photographers, and many more!
