Supporting kids and families in our community
When an expectant parent decides to pursue adoption, we offer support as they seek adoptive parents for their child.
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.
When we are unable to find a family to adopt a child in their country of origin, we prepare a willing and ready family in the United States to adopt the child.
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.
Imagine growing up without the stability of a permanent family. Unfortunately, that’s the reality for many children. That's why we do everything possible to ensure they have a stable, nurturing family.
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.
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.
During their first six months in the U.S., we provide refugee families with a vast array of support. Our goal is to provide a safe new community where refugees can thrive.
We partner with over 100 businesses in West Michigan who hire refugees within their first five years in the U.S. Our staff helps ensure their continual professional development.
As a transitional foster parent, you’ll provide a safe and loving temporary home for unaccompanied children seeking asylum in the U.S., until they can be reunited with a family member.
