The Austin Bar Foundation’s Adoption Day Projects

An attorney and counselor for the Posey Law Firm, PC, Jake Posey has spent more than a decade practicing government relations and business law in Texas. Over the years, he has represented respected market leaders and Fortune 500 companies at his niche practice. Dedicated to staying abreast of changes in the field, attorney Jake Posey belongs to the Austin Bar Association.

Made up of over 4,300 attorneys, the Austin Bar Association is dedicated to supporting both the legal and local community. In 2003, the association established the Austin Bar Foundation. This foundation expands legal-related charitable and educational programs and services such as the Austin and Central Texas Adoption Days. The unique Adoption Day projects bring caseworkers, judges, CASAs, and attorneys together to celebrate newly formed or expanded families. Children at the event are all individuals who have been placed in foster case because of neglect or abuse.

Currently in its 15th year, the Austin Adoption Day has hosted the adoptions of over 500 children who are in the foster care system. Meanwhile, the four-year-old Central Texas Adoption Day has helped more than 100 children find new homes. The projects seek to provide children with safe and stable homes after having previously lived in dangerous environments.
