A Place to Call Home

KSDK NewsChannel 5’s “A Place to Call Home” is a wonderful gift to our children and community!

A Place to Call Home is brought to you in partnership with NewsChannel 5 and Mosby Building Arts.

The Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition is pleased to partner with KSDK NewsChannel 5 for “A Place to Call Home.”   This award-winning, weekly program features children who are legally free for adoption.  It airs Tuesdays at 6 p.m., Wednesdays at noon, Thursdays at 5:30 a.m., and Saturdays during the 9 a.m. newscast.

What makes it so great?  It works!

  • This program has been enormously successful; out of the hundreds of children who have been featured, more than 56% of them have, or are in the process of being, placed in an adoptive home!
  • “A Place to Call Home” even found an adoptive home for a sibling group of nine children!
  • Because of the program’s innovative approach to adoption, “A Place to Call Home” was awarded the National Association of Broadcaster’s Service to America Award and was nominated for a National Emmy.
  • “A Place to Call Home” won a Regional Emmy in the Community Outreach area, and locally, was awarded the “What’s Right in the Region” award from Focus St. Louis.
