All Children – All Families participating agencies are recognized at three different levels of inclusion, depending on the extent to which they have implemented LGBTQ inclusive policies and affirming practices – and All Children – All Families provides resources and technical assistance to help agencies at all levels. This recognition helps agencies establish a track record of LGBTQ inclusion and build meaningful relationships with LGBTQ communities in their area.  Aviva’s Foster and Adoption Agency has received the “Innovator” Seal of Recognition, the highest level from the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation. At this level, agencies are pushing themselves beyond the solid foundation they have built and implementing innovative approaches to LGBTQ inclusion in each of the seven key policy and practice areas. Benchmarks at this level also require agencies to demonstrate leadership in areas like policy advocacy or organizational partnerships.
