Host a Child

Hosting is a growing trend in older child adoption that gives families the opportunities to meet and get to know a child before adopting them. At Kidsave we offer hosting for both US kids and for children living in foster care and orphanages overseas. For the children, hosting gives the kids an opportunity to experience family life and build a relationship with a family who will either adopt them or introduce them to others who are interested in adoption. What Kidsave has experienced over the years, is that once people meet the kids it becomes easy to be their advocates — or to fall in love.

Designers & Developers

Kidsave seeks individuals who can help with online and print communications. Help is needed to get the word out about kids in need of families. If you are handy with design or code, or are a social media wiz, we need you!

Networkers Needed

Engage your networks — your employer, book club, running team, or church group could sponsor a child or launch a community. Know someone famous who might care? Please introduce us.

Churches, Synagogues and Community Groups

We will support your existing ministry. We can help you host and advocate for orphans through your congregation and personal networks. Your ministry may wish to adopt a foreign program and provide needed financial support. If foster care is a passion, we can provide tools that you can present to your local county to begin to think about your faith community can help.

Schools and Students

Lots can be done! Fundraise with a bake sale, a car wash, plan an assembly to share information with the school about the children who need families.

Writing Marketing & PR Pros

Kidsave needs writers, PR pros and marketers who can help us build awareness of the need for families for children and of Kidsave’s global programs. Help us enable more people to take positive action for kids!


Kidsave seeks Spanish language speakers who can interpret for kids during the Summer. We occasionally have need for Russian speakers as well.
