Program Director, Adoption & Orphan Care - Focus on the Family


Katie Overstreet serves as the program director for the Adoption & Orphan Care Initiative at Focus on the Family. The program’s primary objectives are to raise awareness of and recruit families for waiting kids in foster care, as well as provide post-placement resources for adoptive families.
