About You Gotta Believe:

Founded in 1994, You Gotta Believe was started by Pat O'Brien and a group of adoptive parents of teens and young people who had aged out of foster care. You Gotta Believe has successfully placed over 400 teens with permanent families, and trained hundreds of prospective parents with their combination approach of general recruiting methods and their own developed "Finding Families Model". To date, You Gotta Believe remains as the only organization in the United States with its sole mission to find permanent adoptive homes for teens. In continuing its mission, You Gotta Believe has recently developed its 2015 vision to place 25% of children aging out of foster care with an unconditionally committed, loving and permanent family.
