The Adoption Community of New England (ACONE) was founded in 1967 in Massachusetts as the Open Door Society. ACONE has always been committed to the right of every child to a safe and permanent home and to helping all persons touched by adoption to feel empowered.

Adoption Education, Support and Advocacy
ACONE is not a child placement service rather it educates, supports, and advocates on behalf of all members of the adoption triad: birth parents, adoptive parents, and adoptees. It assists members through all stages of their adoption-related experience by means of seminars, workshops, support groups, policy statements, legislative advocacy, and other measures. ACONE also works cooperatively with adoption professionals and agencies to accomplish these goals.
