Adoption Day: February 2016

The Los Angeles Adoption Day Program started in 1997 as a partnership between the Alliance for Children's Rights, Gibson Dunn & Crutcher, the Department of Children and Family Services and Public Counsel. The innovative program began as a solution to the overwhelming number of foster child adoptions, which were stuck in a backlog. Together, we cleared the backlog and in doing so, established a national model for performing adoptions. Adoption Days are held in Los Angeles throughout the year every few months.
