YOU can change the lives of children!

With nearly 35 million children in the USA who have experienced childhood trauma, there is an urgent need to understand and treat the children in our community. With your support, we can help prevent and minimize long-term developmental and mental health challenges facing children who experience early adversity and trauma. Through collaborative efforts and partnerships, we can raise up a generation of children to create healthy adults, families and communities in the future.

When you give...

When you give to support adoption medicine, you improve the development and mental health outcomes for internationally and domestically adopted children and their families.

When you give to support international clinical services and advocacy, your generosity provides medical care for orphans with special needs who have never seen a doctor, and it allows us to educate officials and caregivers caring for children with syndromes such as cerebral palsy and fetal alcohol spectrum disorders.

When you give to support research, you improve the lives of thousands of children. Research informs the evaluation and treatment of children in low-income areas, globally as well as in the US, who all share similar risk factors.
