2024 Hosting Program to Transform the Lives of Children

Posted by Gladney Center for Adoption on 2/29/24 9:10 AM

With over 153 million children in alternative care worldwide, the need for loving families is more pressing than ever. In 2024, our hosting program aims to bridge this gap by bringing international children who are eligible for adoption to the United States from June 28 - July 14. This unique experience transforms the lives of these vulnerable children and leaves a lasting impact on the hosting families.

By participating in our hosting program, families provide a nurturing environment for children eligible for international adoption. This allows the children to experience the love and support of a US family that they may have never experienced before. While one goal of hosting is to provide a cultural experience for a child, it also offers an opportunity for host families to dispel any fears about adopting an older child and play a role in child advocacy.  Together, Gladney and Madison work to shed light on the need for loving and caring families to adopt these children.

As a host family, you can expect to receive ongoing support from our experienced team of coordinators, social workers, and translators. You will also have the opportunity to connect with other host families to create a supportive community that enriches the hosting experience for everyone involved. We are here to guide you through the process, address any concerns, and ensure the safety and well-being of the child and the family.

Join us in making a difference in the lives of children eligible for adoption and experience the joy of providing love and support to a child in need. Together, we can create lasting memories and change for these deserving children.
