About  |   What is Stop The Wait?

The Initiative

Stop The Wait is a grass-roots initiative dedicated to the general cause of connecting local forever families with local waiting orphans in Cuyahoga County.  We accomplish this mission through the following four efforts:






To build awareness of the current foster and adoptive care crisis in Cuyahoga County.


To educate on the process of becoming a foster or adoptive parent.


To provide area churches and organizations tools that will help to build awareness among their constituents.


To connect prospective foster or adoptive parents to resources and local supports.
