  • Mission:
  • The mission of Ampersand Families is to recruit and support permanent families for older youth and to champion practices in adoption and permanency that restore belonging, dignity and hope.

    Our vision is that every young person whose life has been disrupted by child welfare intervention will be restored to a safe, permanent family--with an urgency that honors the brevity of childhood.

    We see anecdotally that kids who are adopted are far less likely to wind up on the streets or in jail, and they get something most of us take for granted: a family to share our triumphs and to fall back on when things go wrong.
