Adoption is a lifelong pact.Maybe you are just beginning to explore the possibility of adopting. Maybe you feel sure that adoption is right for your family. Maybe you have already created a family through adoption. Whatever your situation, Pact is here to work with you.
Pact is a non-profit full-service adoption agency; our mission is to serve adopted children of color for a lifetime. Our goal is for every child to feel wanted, honored, and loved, a cherished member of a strong family with proud connections to the rich cultural heritage that is his or her birthright.
Pact does much more than just adoption placement. We utilize wisdom drawn from research and from real-life experiences to enhance your chances for parenting success. We offer ongoing education and support because we know adoption is not over when the legal documents are finalized-adoption is a lifelong experience.
We are a multicultural organization from top to bottom, and almost all of our staff and board members are either adoptive parents or adopted people. We know that strong, loving families can be created through adoption-and that adoption is a complex experience that should not be undertaken lightly. Our consultations, educational programs, and support groups are all designed to provide you with the skills and knowledge to successfully meet your adopted child's needs on the road from infancy to adulthood.
Pact has established a national reputation advocating for ethical, honest, anti-racist adoption practices. We actively recruit adoptive parents of color for our placement program. We have specific educational programs and support groups for adoptive parents of color, as well as special trainings for white parents and parents of color who want to adopt across racial lines. Pact also engages in community education through public lectures, media interviews, in-service trainings, curriculum development, and more.
Adoption is a lifelong journey. We invite you to learn more about how Pact can help you along the way.
