2021 CCAI Angels in Adoption® Community Recommendation Form
Do you know someone who is an adoption or foster care advocate and is making (or has made) an extraordinary, above and beyond contribution(s) for adoption and foster care? Recommend them as a potential CCAI Angels in Adoption® honoree now through April 5, 2021!

CCAI's signature national public awareness campaign, the Angels in Adoption® Program, allows Members of the U.S. Congress to celebrate individuals, couples, and organizations that have made a difference in the lives of children in need of a family to call their own. More than 2,800 Angels have been recognized through this inspiring program since 1999.

Historically, each fall, the Angels in Adoption® honorees travel from all across the country to visit the nation's capital, meet Members of Congress, and share their adoption, foster care, and child welfare experiences. CCAI also hosts the annual Angels gala, the largest congressional child welfare event in the country, to celebrate our local Angels in Adoption® honorees as well as celebrity National Angels in Adoption® honorees. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Angels program and gala was fully virtual. CCAI is proud that congressional meetings, policy panels and roundtables, and the gala were hosted on a virtual platform, preserving the heart of the Angels program during an unprecedented time. CCAI continues to closely monitor the ongoing pandemic and is keeping safety and health at the forefront of all programming decisions. More updates to come regarding the 2021 events.

To help identify and create a pool of the top child welfare advocates across the country for the CCAI Angels in Adoption® selection committee to consider, there are two different periods – community recommendations (January - April) and congressional recommendations (May - July). Anyone in the community may submit a community recommendation using the steps outlined below. Only congressional offices are able to submit a congressional recommendation. All community recommendations must be received by April 5, 2021.
