Who We Are

FCC is a nonprofit organization supporting Chinese adoptees and their families and friends. Founded in the early 1990s in Manhattan as a parent support group, and expanding to a nation-wide network, our members include adoptive parents, Chinese adoptees and their siblings and other relatives, as well as friends of the organization.

We also provide funds through our FCC Orphanage Assistance Program to help provide foster care, education fees, and other support to children who remain in Chinese orphanages.

Meet the board

We are an all-volunteer nonprofit 501(c)(3). Our board members in the past have included adoptive parents and adult adoptees. We bring a whole range of experience to the table (from law, to childhood development and psychology,  to art, to marketing and fundraising, and more). At the moment, there are seven active board members meet who about once a month, helping to conceive of and plan programs for adoptive parents and adopted kids in the New York area. If you would like to get involved, do not hesitate to reach out to us! We are looking for more community members to get involved at whatever commitment level suits you - from board member to regional coordinator, from event volunteers to event attendees!

meet the FCCNY Adoptee Board


The mission of the FCCNY Adoptee Board is to advocate for Chinese adoptees. Guided by our own experiences, we aim to explore the evolving intersection of our Chinese, American, adoptee, and other personal identities. Through this lens we will bring representation to, and strengthen our relationship with, the wider adoption community. Through ongoing events and projects we will enable Chinese adoptees to share perspectives and engage in a productive environment.

Dear FCCNY Members,

We are excited to welcome and introduce you to the new FCCNY Adoptee Board! The adjunct board, directed by our Board Member Lisa Gibson, includes fourteen young adult adoptees whose perspectives and creative energies promise to enliven and expand our programming supporting Chinese adoptees and their families. We look forward to their input and contributions in the coming months and invite our members to support their activities through attendance, volunteering and moral support as well! Thanks for your continued support of FCCNY.

Extending our best wishes to you during National Adoption Month,

Mary Child and Gary Matles, Co-Presidents
on behalf of the Board of Families with Children from China of Greater New York
