The Contingent was welcomed in Indiana as a partner in foster family recruitment.
Who We Are
The need is great in Indiana for more people going all IN for children in our communities. Every Child Indiana’s role is to connect those caring, generous Hoosiers to opportunities to support, foster and adopt children across the state. Our mission is to be your guide so it can be easier than ever to get involved.
Every Child Indiana is a network of licensing agencies, volunteer organizations, DCS, advocates, and other organizations working together in trust-building collaboration to fill the biggest gaps in caring for children and families before, during, and beyond foster care in our state.
MORE THAN ENOUGH
for children and families before, during, and beyond foster care in every county in Indiana.
What We Do
Every Child shares the realities of foster care while demonstrating a positive, collaborative, and hopeful tone that challenges the stereotypes associated with the system and those involved.
Every Child provides meaningful ways for anyone and everyone to engage with the child welfare system.
Raising Up New Foster Parents
While inviting individuals to get involved at any level, Every Child Indiana is relentless about sharing the need for more foster families (resource). Our mission is to demystify the process and help anyone willing to open their homes get partnered with the best organization for them.
As foster families (resource) come forward at an unprecedented rate and families of origin get reunified (the goal of foster care), Every Child provides relational, community, and tangible support for families.
Foster care organizations began gathering together to explore how collaboration could change the way kids and families are served in Indiana.
“Every Child Indiana” coined and launched as a collective effort with 20+ organizations. We held a public launch to invite everyone into bringing what they can to the table for kids and families impacted by foster care.
Partnering with Indiana Department of Child Services and community organizations, Every Child Indiana works to achieve an ideal placement for every child in foster care through marketing, education, one-on-one connections, and initiatives. There’s something for everyone to bring to the table wherever you are!
