This organization recruits families to adopt HIV children, AIDS Orphans, and drug addicted infants. It refers these children to private homes and public adoption agencies around the United States. A computer database is maintained on a number of families around the country who are caring for these children. The purpose of this database is to maintain a 'Warmline' between these families. The CWA Project also provides a database of national resources pertaining to adoption, foster care, respite, children with AIDS, and drug abandoned babies. It has a Speaker Bureau for local and national workshops, seminars and conventions. It provides a complete referral service and direct client services and financial support networked with other support groups. The CWA Project is instrumental in providing AIDS education for children, families, teens and provides in-service presentations for health-care professionals, social workers, and small and large business. Finally, the CWA Project provides AIDS advocacy support and legal services throughout the United States (Pro Bono) for families adopting or caring for children with AIDS, AIDS Orphans, or drug addicted infants.
The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation creates a future of hope for children and families worldwide by eradicating pediatric AIDS, providing care and treatment to people with HIV/AIDS, and accelerating the discovery of new treatments for other serious and life-threatening pediatric illnesses.
In working toward our mission, the Foundation is committed to ensuring that the vast majority of every dollar raised goes directly into our research, education, and outreach programs.
