The ASCEND school was founded in 2007 by Keith and Angela Levin, whose child, Cade, is affected by Autism. Living in a rural community in Arizona, they started the school after a challenging journey finding proper support for him. For over a year they traveled approximately 200 miles, twice per week for Cade’s educational needs. Realizing this was not the best plan for him and that there were other families with special needs children who lived in the area, they were inspired to open ASCEND.

Today, more than 400,000 children are in the U.S. foster care system,
with 100,000 eligible for adoption. As a society, we’ve promised these 400,000 children in foster care that we would find them safe, supportive homes. Here’s what happens when we don’t fulfill this promise. Thankfully, some children have only a temporary stay in the foster system and are eventually able to be reunified with their birth parents. However, many others can never return to their birth families through no fault of their own. These children desperately need the love and sense of belonging that can only truly come through adoption. Ultimately, we imagine a future in which every American foster child – whether through reunification or adoption – belongs in a loving, safe, and permanent home.
