Welcome to AASK (Adopt A Special Kid) in California
AASK helps you to develop a life-long relationship with a child who needs your love and care. Since 1973, AASK has found that every child is adoptable and has a right to a permanent, loving family. We ask you to further open your heart to a child who has experienced a trauma or is living with a disability. Your family will be deeply enriched! If you have already adopted or fostered a child, AASK offers support programs to help nurture your family and build community.
