Forever Family news stories and on-air promotions highlight children in foster care who are searching for adoptive families, teens 'aging out' of foster care, and issues relating to the American foster care crisis. These stories air on major broadcast television stations and are crafted to engage and motivate the public to action.

Over 30 million dollars in earned media time has been donated to Forever Family to date, all for the purpose of raising awareness and help for children and teens in foster care. This awareness has generated thousands of viewer inquiries, resulting in hundreds of adoptions, foster families and community volunteers. In addition, our viewers have donated more than $1,000,000 in cash, goods, and services directly to children in foster care, adoptive families and teens 'aging out' of the foster care system.
