EXCITING NEWS ~ ACI is happy to announce we are now a 2024 Birthparent Support Alliance Member with On Your Feet Foundation.
Adoption Center of Illinois, a 501(c)(3) non-profit child placement agency licensed in Illinois, is the newest member of the Birthparent Support Alliance, a membership offered by On Your Feet Foundation to adoption professionals committed to best practices in post-placement care for birthparents, regardless of how long-ago placement happened, or the circumstances of that placement.
Who is On Your Feet Foundation?
Founded over twenty years ago, On Your Feet Foundation is a national 501(c)3 organization dedicated to serving the needs of parents after they have placed a child or children for adoption. Recognized as the gold-standard in comprehensive post-placement support for birthparents — a historically under-served population within the adoption community — they are a neutral third-party, providing birthparents with case management, adoption- competent therapy, therapeutic retreats, education and counseling grants, adoption education and strong, vibrant community in which to heal and thrive.
