Chicago Area Families For Adoption (CAFFA) is one of the largest adoption support groups in the Midwest. We are dedicated to providing information and support to all members of the adoption triad and adoption professionals in the Chicagoland area. Major CAFFA events include the biennial CAFFA Adoption Conference, annual Kaleidoscope Culture Camp, annual Camp Pride Korea, and the annual Walk For Adoption Chicago.
CAFFA is one of the largest adoptive parent support groups in the Chicagoland area – representing a diverse population. The percentage of domestic and international adoptions represented in CAFFA is almost equal, with many families consisting of both biological and adoptive children. Our members adopt children through many different avenues including private, agency, and agency-assisted. Membership also includes adoption professionals, agencies and families in the process of adopting.
Adoption professionals are critical to supporting the mission of CAFFA: providing resources for adoptive families, adopted persons, and birth/first parents.
