W.K. Kellogg Foundation



Case Study Sector

Between 1993 and 1999, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation mounted an extensive foster care and adoption reform initiative to help kids stuck for years in foster care find loving permanent homes. Kellogg Foundation program directors representing Families for Kids were visiting the White House on a regular basis, bringing with them a broad range of communication products. Families for Kids grantees, together with recently adopted children and their adoptive parents, were also visiting the White House and speaking formally and informally with staff from the Department of Health and Human Services.
