Supporting kids and families in our community
We help thousands of expectant parents every year—of all
ages and backgrounds—and empower them to make a plan. Only they can make the
decision, but they don’t have to make it alone.
For foster families around the world opening their hearts
and homes to children, we seek to provide ongoing support—every heartwarming
and heartbreaking step of the way.
If you are an adoptive parent, adoptee, birthparent, or have legal custodianship or a formal kinship agreement, our staff is here to provide support through our post-adoption services. Working with SWAN, our services may be available at no cost for children 18 and under.
When parents are going through a temporary crisis, we find
families to care for their children. This allows parents to take essential
steps toward stability.
Our program is designed to help you thrive in your new community by assisting with enrollment in government assistance and job programs, English language programs, access to medical and dental services, and more.
