Founded in 1988 by Betsie Norris, Adoption Network Cleveland is a membership-based organization that has received numerous awards and honors since its creation. Its goal has always been to provide support and care for any family, youth, or parent whose lives has been touched by adoption or foster care. “It supports everyone from adoptees, to birth parents, to families and professionals, and anyone else who needs assistance,” says Dan Carroll, development specialist at Adoption Network Cleveland. “We have done a lot of work in the last 30 years to make a difference, and this event will help support out work in the 30 years to come. We’re very excited.” Support groups and a help line (216-325-1000) are available for anyone who needs it, and the staff are always prepared to help anyone who reaches out for assistance.
