Our Partners

Help us dynamically transform the way child placement decisions are made in the United States family welfare system. Our mission succeeds because of partners who are also committed to providing a loving family for each waiting child. Join those who help us enable belonging through stable placements.

Meet Our Florida Strategic Partner

Selfless Love Foundation

Selfless Love Foundation, a Florida-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is dedicated to transforming the lives of current and former foster youth through awareness, strategic partnerships, and advocacy. Selfless Love Foundation partnered with Adoption-Share to fulfill its goal to see children achieve permanency through adoption in the state of Florida. Thanks to Selfless Love Foundation’s financial support and advocacy for our program, Adoption-Share’s Family-Match program was launched in Florida in July of 2018 at no cost to families or child welfare agencies, and our collective work has transformed the lives of hundreds of children through the gift of family.
