National Network of Supporters
Share |

Today we are witnessing a growing need for homes for children in foster care. According to the US Health and Human Services’ National Adoption and Foster Care Analysis and Reporting System, the number of children in foster care who are waiting to be adopted is on rise – from 108,189 children in 2014 to 111,820 children in 2015. Though 50,000 children are adopted each year, more than 250,000 children enter the foster care system also annually.  Tragically, about 20,000 young people age-out of the system each year without being adopted.

Our national network of supporters care deeply about the welcome of children growing up in the foster care system. Our supporters give gifts to AEA on an annual or reoccurring basis to ensure all children waiting to be adopted in foster care have the very best opportunity to be adopted.

When you invest in AEA, you invest in the life of a child. Those who join our national network receive special recognition on our supporter network page, semi-annual impact reports, thank you gifts, and an annual visit and lunch with the CEO*. If you wish to discuss your investment in AEA, please click here to schedule an appointment.
