Craig Juntunen

In 2006, Craig Juntunen, a retired entrepreneur, became focused on the fate of kids living in orphanages after adopting three children from Haiti. He observed a significant dichotomy: his children were growing and thriving due to the love and support a family provides, yet millions of children were left languishing in orphanages all over the world without the basic human support and love of a family.

Initially, Craig assumed all children housed in institutions were orphans, but quickly realized that was not the case; however, lack of resources, connectivity, and organization often prevented timely reunification of child and family. Beyond that, it was clear that for those children in need of families there were families within their home countries as well as all over the world who were eager to adopt. Craig set out to connect both ends of this issue.
