In 2014, Community Ambassadors launched Stop The Wait, a grass-roots initiative dedicated to the general cause of connecting local families with local waiting orphans in Cuyahoga County. We accomplish this mission through the following four efforts:
- BUILD – To build awareness of the current foster and adoptive care crisis in Cuyahoga County.
- EDUCATE – To educate on the process of becoming a foster or adoptive parent.
- PROVIDE – To provide area churches and organizations tools that will help to build awareness among their constituents.
- CONNECT – To connect prospective foster or adoptive parents to resources and local supports.
The Stop The Wait initiative has its own website here: www.StopTheWait.com
If you or your organization would like to participate or collaborate with this initiative in any way, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 216-200-7030.
