You could be that one person.

Become an Adoption Network Cleveland Permanency Champion

A Permanency Champion is a stable, mature adult mentor who advocates for a teen in a foster care. As a Permanency Champion, we hope that you will:

  • Become a friend to a teen
  • Encourage him or her
  • Support his or her goals
  • Teach a teen valuable life skills
  • Expose a teen to fun and meaningful cultural activities.

As a Permanency Champion, you can become a consistent connection to a teen journeying through adolescence into young adulthood. More importantly, you can become someone to believe in them, someone who cares, and someone who could be a permanency champion throughout their lives.
