Introducing Journey Partners

Introducing the Journey Partner program from the Coalition for Children, Youth & Families

“The Coalition reminds us that adoption is not the end of the story, but a second beginning. They are here to stand with adoptive families in our city.”

  • Parent peer support available by referral
  • Seasoned adoptive parents with lived experience
  • A positive, strong resource to help families know that struggles and hurdles are a normal part of the journey
  • One-to-one matching with a Journey Partner with shared experience to help you grow and advocate for your family.
  • Available to families formed through any type of adoption—foster care, international, or domestic.
  • Allows parents the opportunity to tap into the perspective of an adult adoptee.
