C.A.S.E

The Center for Adoption Support and Education (C.A.S.E.) is a national leader in mental health services for the foster care, kinship and adoption community nationwide with a focus on nurturing, inspiring and empowering families to grow and thrive. C.A.S.E. proudly partners with Jockey Being Family to provide educational resources for thousands of new adoptive families each year through the backpack program, as well as building the adoption competency of mental health therapists across Wisconsin and the country.

Creating a Family

Creating a Family’s mission is to strengthen and inspire adoptive, foster & kinship parents and the professionals who support them. They believe that educated families are strong families, which is why they offer pre- and post-adoption online support, a weekly podcast that covers every aspect of adoption and support group toolkits that encourage discussion and engagement. Through their partnership with Jockey Being Family, they’ve been able to amplify their message and ensure all families have access to the resources they need.

Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption®

The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption® is a nationally recognized non-profit public charity focused on dramatically increasing the adoptions from North America’s foster care systems, raising awareness and creating a national conversation of foster care adoption. Jockey Being Family funded the creation and distribution of “A Step-by-Step Guide to Post-Adoption” for the Foundation and assisted with the critical materials for pediatricians serving adopted children.
