About CCAI

Founded by Joshua Zhong and Lily Nie in 1992, CCAI is a non-profit 501c3 charity recognized by the U.S. federal government, accredited by the Hague Accreditation, and licensed by the states of Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Texas, and Wyoming. CCAI exists to find loving and permanent homes for as many orphans as possible, to reach out to orphans left behind through donor-driven humanitarian aid, and to provide life-long emotional and cultural support to adoptees and families. 

We believe that every child deserves a loving family. For 31 years, CCAI has been working with the China, Haiti, Ukraine, Latvia, Bulgaria, Taiwan and Colombia governments and has found permanent homes for over 13,291 orphans. CCAI is ranked the #1 adoption agency in the world for China adoption by CCCWA.  

We believe that adoption would be meaningless if we do not reach out to the orphans who remain behind. Through such charity programs like food assistance, child care training, foster care development, orphan sponsorship, medical mission and education support, CCAI’s charity efforts have impacted the lives of more than 100,000 orphans over the past 31 years.  

We believe that the completion of an adoption is just the beginning of our responsibility to adoptees and their families. Since we opened the Joyous Chinese Cultural School (JCCS) in 1996, our passion for continued post-adoption support has grown richer and stronger, eventually evolving into The Park Adoption Community Center in 2019, which, in addition to JCCS, houses life-changing programs such as Adopteen, AdopTween, Xpress Yourself, Heritage Tours, and Adoptees Giving Back Orphanage Service Trips just to name a few, benefitting thousands of adopted children and their families across the country.
