There is one issue on which all Americans agree, every child needs a family.

Millions of children are stuck and forgotten, living in orphanages

FOOD AND SHELTER DO NOT MAKE CHILDREN THRIVE... FAMILIES DO.

THE SAFEST PLACE FOR A CHILD IS IN THE LOVING ARMS OF A PARENT

Children without parents are the most vulnerable children in the world. They are alone, they are often out of sight, and they are voiceless. They cannot fight for themselves; they need YOU to be their voice. CHIFF Children in Families First calls for the redirection of a modest portion of the $2 billion the United States currently spends on children living abroad toward ensuring that all children grow up in a family. What’s more, it calls for programs funded with US tax dollars to focus on reducing the number of children living without families and increasing the capacity of other governments to better protect their own children. The best protection for a child is a family. We protect children by preserving families, reunifying families or creating families through adoption.
