The need for adoptive families is critical. Currently there are 424,000 children in foster care nationwide; 122,000 are in immediate need of a family. Of the 20,000 kids that age out of foster care annually, 20 percent become instantly homeless.
About the organization: Raise the Future, formerly The Adoption Exchange, is a Colorado-based nonprofit that was founded in 1983 with the purpose of connecting young people in foster care with the adults who become stable forces in their lives and supporting those relationships so that they last a lifetime. Raise the Future operates in Colorado, Utah, Nevada and Missouri.
