Adoption campaign with emphasis on teens

School-age children and teens need the love and stability of a forever family

School-age children and teens need the love and stability of a forever family, just like younger children.

That’s why, during Adoption Awareness Month in November, British Columbia is expanding its 1000FamiliesBC marketing and social media campaign to encourage British Columbians to consider adopting one of the more than 350 older children, those over the age of 12, currently seeking permanent homes.

Now in its second year, the 1000FamiliesBC campaign is a powerful recruiting tool that raises the profile of ministry adoptions, dispels common myths about adoption, and promotes unique and diverse adoptive families and children waiting for adoption through online advertising, tweets and Facebook posts.

The ministry worked in partnership with the Adoptive Families Association of BC (AFABC) to design the campaign.
