Advocate Educate Support

We recognize adoption as a complex, lifelong, and intergenerational journey with ongoing impact for all those whose lives are touched by it.

Give moments of joy to your community this holiday season.

This year has taught us to treasure the moments we share with loved ones, friends, coworkers, and members of our community. It has brought to light how important our support networks are to our physical and mental health, to the strength of our families and our personal identity. In 2020 your connections proved invaluable and created your most fond memories. Celebrate the joys in your life by bringing hope and reassurance to your community this holiday season through a gift to Adoption Network Cleveland!   

This year, we hope you’ll consider a gift that is meaningful to you in order to bring joyous moments of togetherness and uplifting support to the adoption, kinship, and foster community.  

Also, your gift will have double the impact as two generous donors are matching every gift up to a total of $10,000!  



Together we build community and help create a brighter future.

    “Connecting with her birth family, exploring and engaging with other adoptees in the community, and the relationship my wife has with Adoption Network personally have given her more than I can even express and gave us the foundation to continue onward with our own little family.”

NRP Group’s new paid leave policy includes extended paid leave for adoptive parents, joining other companies across the US that are Adoption-Friendly Workplaces. Adoption Network Cleveland applauds this policy change which supports permanency for children and strong families.

Since our founding, public policy and advocacy efforts on issues connected to adoption and child welfare have been core to Adoption Network Cleveland’s mission. Today, this work is continued with the assistance of our Public Policy Committee and ensures your voice is heard.
