OUR MISSION

The mission of Family-Match is to serve as a platform for efficiency within the public child welfare arena by unlocking the vault of waiting families and introducing safe homes to caseworkers—and ultimately to children in need of foster care or adoptive homes.

"The amount of social good Family-Match can do, and the amount of help it can bring to kids, foster families, and society is tremendously exciting." – Gian Gonzaga, Director of Data Science, Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.

A UNIQUE MATCHING APPROACH

Family-Match partners with state governments to offer caseworkers on the frontline of their child welfare programs an innovative tool to match children with families on markers of compatibility. Waiting families create free profiles and make themselves visible to caseworkers.

With this powerful network in hand, caseworkers can identify families on markers of compatibility that extend beyond basic demographic information. Through our automated matching system, Family-Match generates optimal connections at the moment new candidates are identified and allows caseworkers the opportunity to connect with families directly.

CHALLENGE

"A caseworker can find the best family for a child by spending hours interviewing a family and more hours getting to know a child. But can you do that a thousand times, consistently performing on that average? The truth of the matter is that one-ops are successful, but they only represent a small percentage of placements across the spectrum of child and family pairings. The rest? Children move at a minimum of three times each year and it goes downhill from there." Thea Ramirez, Founder + Chief Sharer, Family-Match

SOLUTION

Family-Match created a model where the most amount of families and children benefit. Our proprietary system—based on current research, data science, and machine learning—enables us to optimize our pool of families and children and significantly increase the likelihood of matching compatible families and children.

FAMILY-MATCH REMOVES THE BARRIERS TO YOUR FOREVER FAMILY.

This groundbreaking work allows us to advocate for permanency in children, usher in adoptions, and bring together entire state agencies—including caseworkers, families, and children—into one place. Family-Match technology promotes a simplified workflow for overburdened caseworkers, saves the state money, and enhances the welfare of children in state care by promoting placement stability.
