Child and Family Services of Northeast Michigan, Inc.

Alpena, MI 49707 | (989) 356-4567

Child & Family Services of Northeast Michigan as we know it today first opened its doors in 1958 as a field office of the Michigan Children’s Aid Society as a response to the needs expressed by our local communities. In recent years, our agency has provided services which address such major community concerns as: child abuse and neglect, juvenile delinquency, the breakdown of family relationships, the plight of homeless children, and those with special needs. Child & Family Services of Northeast Michigan is a child welfare agency seeking to promote the social and emotional well-being of families and individuals in Northeast Michigan by fostering healthy personality and social skill development while strengthening and supporting family functioning. We have hosted a number of programs throughout the years designed address this region’s needs from specialized foster care to adoption to various Great Start initiatives. We seek to collaborate and coordinate services with the other public and private human service providers throughout the region in order to strengthen Northeast Michigan as a whole. Types of Children Who Are Available for Adoption: Those whose biological parents parental rights have been terminated through the judicial process and children who have been voluntarily released by their parents.

Catholic Human Services, Inc. - Alpena

Alpena, MI 49707 | (989) 356-6385

Our adoption program is small but distinguished. We have been doing open adoption since 1980, longer than any other agency in the country. Catholic Human Services emerged as a leading national voice for the cause of humanizing the adoption experience. Over the years we have arranged more than 550 open adoptions in northern Michigan, and we are very proud of the outcomes we have witnessed. Adoption makes clear something that is true in all of life: namely, we are interdependent with others. As such, it is very important that you know who you are working with.
