Korean Focus-Indiana, Inc. (KFI) is a non-profit, 501 (c) 3 tax–exempt organization that exists to support children adopted from Korea and their families who reside in the state of Indiana.
The most important mission for KFI is to provide to the child adopted from Korea, a place where they can learn, grow and share with other Korean adoptees. KFI hopes to provide a place of mutual understanding where our children can connect with one another and with the Korean American community, all while learning about the rich heritage of their birth country; it’s customs, culture, art, history and language.
Korean Focus-Indiana also recognizes that parenting a child adopted transracially/transculturally requires unique knowledge, skills, understanding and support. KFI seeks to provide member families with connectivity and community as well as to provide resources for, and education on, adoption parenting.
