Welcome to A Family For Every Child - Serving Families, Children and Agencies Nationwide / A Family For Every Child is dedicated to finding loving, permanent families for every waiting foster child.


Featured Family:
Brian and Arthur

We have always loved children. We both have large loving and supportive extended families with whom we spend a great deal of our time. Our lifestyle is very family- and outdoor-oriented. We spend a lot of time in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Louisiana with various members of the family, enjoying road trips, camping, watching parades and fireworks, exploring New York City, and eating good food. We have a cat and two dogs, the latter of which we take with us whenever possible – from hiking in the mountains to walks in the park.
