Utah Foster Care (UFC) has been recognized for its inclusion and enhanced service to the LGBTQ+ community. The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation’s 2021 Change-Makers report highlights 119 child welfare agencies across the country who have worked with the HRC Foundation’s All Children – All Families (ACAF) program to improve the services they provide to the LGBTQ+ community, including children in foster care and prospective foster and adoptive parents.
The HRC Foundation estimates one out of every three children in foster care are LGBTQ+ in the United States.
“The third edition of our Change-Makers report shows that, despite the many hardships of the last year, more organizations than ever before are working alongside the Human Rights Campaign Foundation to make impactful change for the LGBTQ+ youth and families they serve,” said Alison Delpercio, Human Rights Campaign Foundation Director, All Children – All Families.
Utah Foster Care (UFC) is a nonprofit serving Utah’s children by finding, educating and nurturing families to meet the needs of children in foster care. UFC has recruited and trained more than 14,000 foster/adoptive families since its creation by the Utah legislature in 1999.
