I AM IN A LOVING, NURTURING HOME.
MY FAMILY IS FOREVER.
My name is Erica* and I didn't have a family for 13 years.
I was shuffled from place to place.
My heart hurt. A lot. I was lonely and sad.
I'd ask myself:
Why would a family want me?
Then, I met my family and they liked me. They listened to me. Believed in me.
Now I have a home.
Thank you, COAC.

Who are we?
COAC's mission is to ensure that every child has a permanent, loving and nurturing home. We've been meeting our mission for over 40 years.
We recruit and support parents who want to adopt children in the foster care system who are legally freed for adoption and have no identified adoptive family; most have special needs, are older or are in sibling groups.
COAC also provides supportive services and develops permanency plans with families living with HIV/AIDS to insure that children will not have to enter the foster care system if parents are no longer able to care for the children. Meet the staff.
The New York Council on Adoptable Children (COAC) welcomes all applicants regardless of race, color, religion, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, ethnicity, national origin, and marital, veteran, financial or citizenship status.
WE'd love TO HEAR FROM YOU!
