Lutheran Adoption Service - Ann Arbor

Ann Arbor, MI 48108 | (734) 971-1944

Lutheran Adoption Service is Michigan's largest full service private adoption agency, providing services for International, Domestic Infant & State Ward adoption services. Lutheran Adoption Service specializes in the placement of children from the State’s foster care system. Many children in foster care are in need of permanent adoptive homes. Most of these children have been neglected, abused or abandoned by their birth parents. The majority of children waiting for adoptive homes are African-American. Many of them are school age, male or are part of a sibling group who need to be placed together. Learning disabilities, developmental delays and emotional problems are common. Most of these children are in need of ongoing therapy and adoptive families find this a key ingredient to success.

Catholic Social Services of Washtenaw County

Ann Arbor, MI 48108 | (734) 971-9781

When CSSW first opened its doors in 1959, adoption and counseling were the main focus. Over 50 years later, programs and staff have greatly expanded. In addition to focusing on finding children happy and loving homes, we also have support for low income and teen moms, counseling for adoptive parents and birth mothers and provide search and reunion services for those who either made adoption plans or were adopted through CSSW.
