People powered,
for good.


At Our Family Coalition, we know the world our kids are growing up in can become a more just and equitable place, for all families.

All it takes is understanding that the power we have is greater in community, and greater still when directed for the good.  

The support you give adds up–to the highlights above, and so much more.  And there's so much more we can do–together.


Power up your community

Take Action


Every Child Deserves a Family.  


Over 120,000 at-risk foster youth nationwide await a permanent family. One in five identifies as LGBTQ, and they fare markedly worse than their non-LGBTQ peers.  


Right now 10 states – home to 30,000 children awaiting adoption – sanction discrimination against foster youth and prospective adoptive parents on the basis of religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, and marital status.


At any time that's wrong. During a crisis, that's unconscionable.


The Every Child Deserves a Family Act, reintroduced on June 5th, will put an end to that.
