Who We Are
FCC is a nonprofit organization supporting Chinese adoptees and their families and friends. Founded in the early 1990s in Manhattan as a parent support group, and expanding to a nation-wide network, our members include adoptive parents, Chinese adoptees and their siblings and other relatives, as well as friends of the organization.
We also provide funds through our FCC Orphanage Assistance Program to help provide foster care, education fees, and other support to children who remain in Chinese orphanages.

meet the Adoptee Board
The mission of the FCCNY Adoptee Board is to advocate for Chinese adoptees. Guided by our own experiences, we aim to explore the evolving intersection of our Chinese, American, adoptee, and other personal identities. Through this lens we will bring representation to, and strengthen our relationship with, the wider adoption community. Through ongoing events and projects we will enable Chinese adoptees to share perspectives and engage in a productive environment.
