Twenty years ago, our founders recognized the importance of post-placement care for birthparents. Today, On Your Feet Foundation is recognized as the leader in comprehensive post-placement support for birthparents, a demographic that has historically been under-served within the adoption community. We do this through case management, access to adoption-competent therapy, therapeutic retreats, education and counseling grants, adoption education and community-building. Learn more and find support.
Retreats held since 2005
Grants Awarded Since 2015

Birthparents Accessing Services in 2021
Birthparent Support Alliance is a membership offered to adoption professionals committed to best practices in post-placement care. This opportunity benefits agencies, their adoptive families and birthparents by providing access to our comprehensive suite of programs including case management services, adoption education for hopeful adoptive families and staff.
On May 13, 2023, we will be gathering our community to celebrate national Birthmother’s Day and we invite you to participate by sponsoring this significant event. The month of May is one of the hardest times of the year for birthparents. Mother’s Day - and Birthmother’s Day – are challenging holidays. As an organizational member of the adoption constellation, this is an opportunity for you to show your commitment to birthparents and align with On Your Feet Foundation’s mission to provide post-adoption support.
