Our mission is to create change so that children to be adopted grow up in families and connected to caring adults.
Kidsave is passionate about the value of older kids. We believe every child needs a family and our work is to make that happen. Our vision is a world where every child is nurtured from birth, where the loss of human potential due to neglect is absent, and where people everywhere care enough that all children, even those abandoned, grow up in stable, loving families.
Kidsave’s Family Visit Model works in a variety of cultures. It enables families to host an older child for adoption who live in foster care and orphanages. Hosts get to know the child, mentor and support them, and work with Kidsave to find the child a permanent family. This model works for American kids in foster care using the Weekend Miracles Program and for children living in orphanages around the world. It also works for international adoption, through our Summer Miracles Program.Summer Miracles gives vacations to older kids who cannot find permanent families in their own countries, giving them a chance to find a family abroad.
