A wise man once said, “We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future.”


“There are more than 3,000 children ages 10 and up that are listed as foster care youth and in need of permanent homes and help. The statistics of homelessness happening in our own backyards is incredibly high, and demands our efforts. It is important that we create lasting solutions to homelessness by addressing not only emergency needs, but also by dealing with the underlying issues facing our children,” said Chief Executive Officer Jacqueline D. Wilson.

“Three Rivers Adoption Council (TRAC) has served as Pennsylvania’s foremost resource for adoption information, referral services, support, and education. As we grow, we will continue to spread our mission of improving adoption opportunities for children awaiting permanency throughout the state of Pennsylvania.”

TRAC recognizes the importance in pushing to find permanent homes for teens, and the non-profit organization is dedicated to seeing a decrease in the amount of teens who are in need of loving homes.

“The need to spread love and find firm foundations for our youth is crucial,” she said. “The youth are crying out to us for help, and this issue requires our attentiveness. The church is the chief place for spiritual edification and growth. And if we approach adversities wisely, our hardest times can become the times of our greatest growth,” Wilson said.
