Children need support on the lifelong journey of adoption — and so do adults.
Connecting with other people who share your experiences helps you thrive. That’s why Pact is committed to creating safe, supportive, no-cost spaces where all members of the adoption triad—including former foster youth and adult adoptees of color, first/birth family members, and adoptive and foster parents of children of color—can build community with peers who understand them.
You can attend a support group every month, or drop in occasionally. Virtual meetings are held via Zoom; in-person meetings are generally held at Pact headquarters in Emeryville, CA.
Most support groups are FREE to all members of the communities they serve, and all groups are free to Pact members. Pre-registration for each meeting is required. Register on our Events page.
