The 2019 Silver Cradle Award Honorees

The Silver Cradle Award was created by The Cradle to recognize corporate partners for their commitment to adoption and to their employees. Awarded at The Cradle’s annual gala since 2003, the Silver Cradle recognizes companies that offer adoption-related benefits, programs and resources. Honorees provide family-friendly employer benefits ranging from referrals to financial assistance, and demonstrate a commitment to supporting children, pregnant women and adoptive families.  In addition to building employee loyalty and providing a competitive edge in recruitment, family-centered employer benefits also support our vision for a world where every child thrives in a safe and loving family. Award recipients embody our mission to build families through adoption, support families through life’s challenges and strengthen communities through education.
