Sharrett Family brought together in Florida thanks to the strategic parntership of the Selfless Love Foundation

Keller Williams Realty has been leveraging technology to help people find their dream homes. Now for RED Day 2021,  the Keller Williams Golden Isles Family is supporting the expansion of Adoption-Share’s Family-Match technology program to help connect children in the foster care system with their forever families.   

Adoption-Share and Keller Williams Golden Isles are working together to help find loving and safe homes for children waiting to be adopted. Your gift of $100 will support Adoption-Share’s efforts to expand its Family-Match Program and fund one post-placement package shipped to adoptive families matched through Family-Match. 

And the best news- your support will be doubled through a generous $40,000 matching grant recently awarded through the St. Marys United Methodist Church Foundation!

On May 13, our team of KW Golden Isles Realtors ® will put the boxes together!

The Current Need

Over 120,000 children in the United State’s foster care system have a goal of adoption. Each year 50% of these children will be adopted, leaving 60,000+ to wait year after year without achieving that goal.  
 
Helping children achieve permanency through adoption is vital for achieving best outcomes. Sadly for children with a goal of adoption and no identified family to adopt them, the clock is ticking to be adopted before they age out of care.  Nationally, an estimated 20,000 young adults will age out of care each year -leaving them vulnerable to being trafficked, incarcerated, or becoming homeless.  
 
Families make all the difference.  It’s our goal to ensure every child who dreams of being adopted achieves that goal and have partnered with Adoption-Share to help expand their Family-Match application to new states.

The Future of Adoption with Family-Match

Family-Match is a data-driven application that leverages technology and predictive analytics to connect waiting children with waiting families. With Family-Match, social workers now have a tool to efficiently assess the most compatible family for their waiting children – even families who are just beginning their journey to be approved to adopt. The science behind the matching models promotes child and family pairings that will yield the greatest chance of success. Adoption-Share’s transformative work in this space has been recognized globally.
