You Gotta Believe is a New York City-based, national organization that specializes in finding permanent families for young adults, teens, and pre-teens in foster care.
Every child deserves a loving, devoted family. We focus exclusively on achieving this goal for every kid in foster care because we know family is the SOLUTION! We believe in Family First – followed by services to support both the kids and the family. When a child is connected to a permanent, loving family as the first and primary solution, support services like education and job readiness become exponentially more effective and valuable.
100% of You Gotta Believe’s program staff is made up of people who adopted kids from foster care or who were in foster care themselves. That’s why we have a fierce belief in, and commitment to, finding a family for every kid in foster care. We are proof it is possible! Just listen to some of our stories…
Join us in fighting for Families First for every kid in foster care, no matter what their age or challenges.
