We believe in keeping families together and fighting for a bright future for youth. We also believe the foster care system should support all children and families without discrimination by advocating to strengthen our child welfare system.
Appleseed is a proud participant of the Every Child Deserves a Family campaign, which promotes the best interests of all children in the foster care and adoption system by supporting LGBTQ youth and oppose discriminatory adoption and foster care bills.
The Every Child Deserves a Family Act (ECDF) is a federal bill that promotes the best interests of children by increasing the number of foster and adoptive homes available to all foster children and improving services to LGBT and religious minority foster children.
