About New Alternatives for Children: NAC’s mission is to provide innovative high quality services in support of birth, foster and adoptive families caring primarily for medically fragile children, often in combination with mental health, behavioral and/or developmental disabilities. NAC’s services enable children to remain in or to be returned to their families whenever possible or to be adopted by loving families. Working with children whose birth families live in poverty, NAC’s continuum of services ensures that children’s physical, social, educational, recreational, medical and mental healthcare needs are met. By supporting families, NAC prevents lengthy stays in foster care, hospitals or other institutions. NAC builds on family strengths, provides opportunities and assists all family members in reaching for and achieving their potential.
