Chosen

Chosen exists to keep adoptive and foster families together by empowering and equipping families with the tools they need to heal children and give them LOVING AND PERMANENT HOMES.

Chosen fills the unmet need of long-term care for foster and adoptive families.  They move alongside caregivers to give them proven and effective tools that will ensure a loving and permanent home for hurting children.  Their care results in children, who are less likely to go back in the system, drop out of school early, have a teenage pregnancy, abuse drugs, end up homeless.  They interrupt the cycle of trauma and provide children with a bright outlook for their future.
