Featured Family: Daniel and Angela
We are a nurturing, fun family who has more than enough love to share with another child! We have been foster parents, we have provided respite and now we are ready and excited for another little girl to join us for forever! We are looking for a girl between the ages of 0-8 years old. We are actively involved in our church, our children play sports and pursue musical interests, and we have so much fun just being together!

Sign Up for the Matching Assistance Program!
A Family For Every Child's Matching Assistance Program is a free program designed to help waiting families become matched with waiting foster children. Our program is most beneficial to families who are seeking to adopt a foster child over the age of seven with special needs. We provide families with resources and assistance during their adoption journey through newsletters, how-to guides, various media recommendations, and more. We provide families with the tools to submit and advocate for themselves, while offering support and assistance during the matching process.
Introducing: The Host Home Program
A Family For Every Child in collaboration with the 15th Night network has created a homestay-style housing program for youth experiencing homelessness in the Eugene area. The program allows youth to finish their secondary education, while experiencing safe, stable and reliable housing. With the help of the 15th Night and the many stakeholders involved in the network, A Family For Every Child seeks to help eliminate youth homelessness in Eugene.
