Our Community


If you believe in our mission of helping children find permanent, loving parents through adoption, we invite you to join our community of supporters. There are lots of different ways you can help – become a volunteer.

Volunteer for the phone team

During weekday evenings and on weekends, we rely on volunteers to answer our phones. The office phone lines can be forwarded to your home or mobile phone so you can easily field calls from birth parents and prospective adoptive parents.

Be available as a reference

Often, potential adoptive parents who are considering working with ACI rely on the testimony of families who have previous experience with the agency. As a family who has worked with us, you can provide valuable support by making yourself available to share your story.

Like us, follow us or write a review
