California kids connection

California Kids Connection is an online registry of children who need permanent, loving, adoptive families.  It serves as the adoption exchange for the State of California.  Additionally California Kids Connection assists families in navigating the complex foster care and adoption system, providing information, referrals and resources to families.

California Kids Connection supports the recruitment efforts of counties and aids them in matching children with families who can meet their needs, and also provides post-adoption support and resource information to families parenting children who are adopted or have been in foster care.

All services of California Kids Connection are free to families and counties.
