Celebrating all we have achieved and the life-changing work that continues.


For 25 years now Kidsave has been helping older kids in foster care and orphanages be seen, find families, and thrive.

At any given time nearly 120,000 kids in the U.S. are waiting for adoption, according to the Administration for Children and Families. Additionally, 2 million children are eligible for adoption throughout the world, according to UNICEF. Research shows that a child is most likely to be adopted during the first nine years of their life. After their tenth birthday, they are considered an “older child,” and their odds of being adopted dramatically decrease.

We believe that every child deserves a family, but without action, thousands of older kids will continue to grow up in care, unsupported, without the love and safety of family.

Kidsave exists to change that. Our innovative programs are designed to create opportunities for older children in foster care to connect with adoptive families and life-long mentors. Kidsave currently operates its programs in four nations: the U.S., Ukraine, Colombia, and Sierra Leone.

Our mission is to create change so older, forgotten children in foster care and orphanages grow up in families and are connected to caring adults.

Because when they have a family to guide them, encourage them, and be there for them, these kids can truly thrive and become the people they were destined to be.

Kidsave is in the U.S. and around the world.
In Ukraine, Kidsave is rescuing children and families and providing humanitarian aid.

Our gallery features children available for adoption and hosting. These kids want and need a lasting, caring connection with a mentor or adoptive family. Take a look through our galleries, inquire about them, and help us find their forever families!


Just like how each child is unique, so is each adoption story. There are many paths that you can take to grow your family through adoption; visit HOST A CHILD to learn more about the hosting and adoption process, and fill out this inquiry form to connect with a Kidsave coordinator today!
