Human Rights Council (HRC)
Check the All-Children-All-Families list! The Human Rights Council (HRC) maintains a list of participating adoption agencies that have achieved HRC designation as “All Children-All Families Benchmarks of LGBTQ Cultural Competency.” These agencies “promote inclusive policies and affirming practices among welfare agencies.” To date, there are more than 70 child welfare agencies on the HRC list from across the country who have partnered with the All Children – All Families project to offer improved services to the LGBTQ community, which includes adoption services. To earn a spot on the list, these agencies have conducted self-assessments, undertaken professional staff development and have implemented “benchmarks of LGBTQ Inclusion,” which includes monitoring and tracking policy and practice changes within the agencies. The list is a valuable resource for sure!
