Spaulding for Children

Adopt America’s Children (Spaulding for Children) just celebrated 50 years as a private, nonprofit child welfare agency. They find temporary and permanent homes for children who are in the foster care and adoption system. Adopt America’s Children (Spaulding) is one of the first agencies to specialize in finding and training adoptive families for the placement of children who have been abused, neglected and/or have other individual challenges. They also train and support young mothers to prevent their children from ending up in the child welfare system.
