Adoption Awareness Coalition

The Adoption Awareness Coalition, convened by Adoption Network Cleveland: The Ohio Family Connection, is an alliance of agencies and organizations committed to promoting understanding and visibility of adoption in Northeast Ohio and beyond. The Coalition works to:

  • promote stability of children and families
  • raise public awareness about adoption and children waiting for adoption
  • provide educational programs for adoptive, foster families and professionals

The Adoption Awareness Coalition currently offers a quarterly learning community opportunity that utilizes Coalition members’ strengths and professional backgrounds to facilitate an open discussion around a topic, or a mini-training or workshop that the group finds relevant to their work.

If your organization is interested in joining the Adoption Awareness Coalition for 2018, the cost of membership is minimal—$150 a year—less than $.50 a day.

Membership comes with many benefits, including 10 free registrations for member agency staff and families to the quarterly Learning Community workshops, as well as all of the benefits of the $100 regular Organizational Membership.

For more information about joining the Adoption Awareness Coalition or about trainings that are offered, contact Jennifer Zisk-Vitron, Director of Programs, at or (216) 482-2320.
