Mission

~ The Mission of The Children First Foundation is to promote and support Adoption and Safe Havens as positive choices for unplanned or unwanted pregnancies and newborns.
~ The Children First Foundation (CFF) believes that adoption is a mature, intelligent, loving, life-giving choice for an unwanted pregnancy that deserves broader public understanding, appreciation and support.
~ CFF is dedicated to helping women who choose life and adoption for their crisis pregnancies by providing pro-adoption funding and other adoption-related resources to pro-life, non-profit, non-government funded agencies that support all of the adoption options (including the anonymous Safe Haven option) as positive, alternative choices for unwanted unborn and newborn infants.
~ The mission, therefore, of The Children First Foundation is to help increase the annual number of crisis pregnancy adoptions by raising public awareness, support, and funds for the needs of women who choose life and adoption for their unplanned pregnancies.

"Choose Life" License Plate Program

The Children First Foundation is the official sponsor of the pro-adoption "Choose Life" License Plate in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

CFF's Connecticut "Choose Life" License Plate was approved in 2003.  Administrative and legal efforts have been underway for the approval of CFF's "Choose Life" License Plates in New York since 2001, and in New Jersey since 2002. Thanks to generous members and supporters in all three states, CFF has raised and distributed over $75,000 to more than 200 eligible, pro-life agencies located throughout the Tri-State Area.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

1. Over the next three to five years The Children First Foundation would like to surpass the great success of the Florida Choose Life Tag that has been purchased by over 40,000 motorists and is currently raising over $800,000 annually to help women choose life and consider adoption as a courageous, loving and life-giving choice for an unplanned pregnancy.

2. The Children First Foundation is the sponsoring non-profit organization of the Choose Life Tag in four northeastern states and we firmly believe that, with a significant grant from a generous donor, our organization is prepared to launch a campaign to recruit at least 100,000 motorists -- if not more -- to purchase this extremely popular and life-saving tag that truly saves babies' lives and puts "children first."

3. The Choose Life License Plate movement has built up strong alliances, partnerships and grassroots support in all 50 states. With the strong support of so many pro-life, pro-marriage and pro-family individuals, organizations, clergy, churches and congregations our goal is to unite and together mobilize a massive, horse-powered Culture of Life, with a Choose Life License Plate in every state and on every car!

1. Pregnancy Resource Centers and Maternity Homes are always seeking new ways to raise awareness and funding for their important outreach to pregnant women in need of assistance. Just as so many pro-life agencies now sponsor Baby Bottle drives, many of the agencies are now realizing the great potential of the Choose Life License Plate to raise greater awareness and funding for their centers.

2. Likewise, churches and congregations, young people in respect life clubs at high schools and colleges are always looking for ways to promote and fund the important work of helping desperate pregnant women and their unborn children. Again, promoting the Choose Life Tag is an simple, easy and affordable way to mobilize and become both a witness and an advocate in a very practical and tangible way..
