Foster Care Adoption Program

Ensuring children and youth thrive in new families. Since 1900, CHS has worked with a sense of urgency to ensure that at-risk children and youth
grow up in nurturing families who are prepared to meet their needs. In addition to assisting families with private adoptions, CHS recruits
and trains families to adopt children and youth from foster care. Our focus is on children ages 12 and older, who often wait the longest to
be adopted. Families participate in our approval process that includes trauma-informed training and a home study. We then match them with
a waiting child based on the child’s individual needs, personality and background. CHS guides the legal adoption process which formalizes the child becoming a permanent member of the family.
