The Kidsave team is now working virtually. We are maintaining regular 9am-6pm office hours in both Los Angeles and Washington DC and our staff is available via email and phone at our regular extensions. We continue to work diligently to fulfill our mission to make sure every child has a family and the support they need to thrive. Full Statement

Program covid updates can be found on the individual program pages, or
in the blog post here.

We work to create global change so older children grow up in families and connected to caring adults.

When Kidsave started we saw a need to help older, overlooked kids move out of orphanages and foster care and into families.

Today we run programs that help children for adoption find loving families and supportive mentors.

An estimated
8 million children live in institutions worldwide  and more than
442,000 children are in foster care in the U.S.


Every child needs someone to love them for just who they are. Take a look through our galleries to see the children we hope will find a parent’s love through Kidsave.
