About Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption is the only non-profit, public organization in the US working to increase the number of children adopted from foster care into permanent families. Nearly 20,000 teens aged out of the foster care program just last year, opening these young people up to higher chances of homelessness or other negative factors. The Foundation wants to change this statistic, their vision is that "every child will have a permanent home and loving family". The foundation allies itself with child welfare advocates, freely provides resources about foster care adoption, and runs campaigns to increase the public's awareness of foster care based adoption for children of all ages.
"Our story began in 1990 when Dave Thomas, founder of Wendy’s, accepted President George H.W. Bush’s invitation to be the spokesperson for a national adoption awareness campaign. However, Dave knew he could do more. In 1992, he established the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption." -davethomasfoundation.org
Wendy’s Wonderful Kids®, the Foundation's signature program, gives grants to adoption agencies so they can hire effective workers who use an "evidence-based, child-focused recruitment model" that better helps children in foster care find their loving, permanent homes.
