Mission Statement

The Campaign envisions a nation where every child is wanted by at least one family. The Campaign accepts the task of telling the public that this is possible. The Campaign will generate 5,000,000 signatures endorsing this vision.

Description

We have been around for a while but this is a heavy lift- we're basically a start-up with a vision. There are at least 1,000,000 displaced children in the U.S. They are at phenomenal risk of being unable to function properly as adults. 30 - 50% of compromised adults grew up on their own- displaced from family. "Angie" has been in 32 different foster houses and group homes. She’s 14 now. Why??? The Campaign says lack of resources, fundamental misinformation, and wrong assumptions have led to this tragedy.
By displaced children, the Campaign refers to children who are not being cared for by at least one caring, mature adult in a lifelong, legally secure relationship. Yes, the terminology can be confusing, there are many homeless children who are members of homeless families. However the Campaign means the 1,000,000+ children who are in the care of no one.
The Campaign is simply a guerrilla marketing public education effort telling the public that there are enough families to care for each and every one of these children. We need volunteers for every facet of the operation and we're flexible. If you already have skills and talents, that's wonderful but it's also wonderful if you want to learn new skills and talent! If this piques your interest, contact us.
