Kids need families.

Your community has those families.

Second Nurture partners with communities like yours to prioritize foster care and adoption.

We help you explore, pursue and thrive in fostering and adoption by mobilizing your community to support you every step of the way.

Even if you've just started thinking about fostering, feel free to join a cohort or online event.

30% of American adults have considered welcoming kids from foster care into their loving families. If merely half a percent of those who consider fostering or adopting from foster care actually do it, we could get every kid into a family.

Second Nurture closes the gap between consideration and action.

How We Can Make A Difference

Live in L.A. County?

Second Nurture was founded in 2017 by Susan Silverman. After meeting hundreds of people in dozens of cities in the US and Canada while touring with her book, a memoir about her family and adoption, she became convinced that many more people would foster and adopt if they had direction, fellowship and support.
