Family & Children Services, Inc. - Battle Creek

Battle Creek, MI 49015 | (269) 965-3247

For more than 110 years, Family & Children Services has been the voice of concern and compassion for our most vulnerable citizens. The Agency’s mission is embraced by our 23-member Board of Directors and staff of 240, who commit every day to being A Source of Hope for those we serve. Family & Children Services responds to each community and its changing needs, inviting community members to join us through donation and volunteer service. The Agency offers more than 30 behavioral health and child welfare programs and services as one organization – board members, staff and foster parents – with a unity of purpose. All services are strength-based and client-centered, supporting individuals and families as they create healthy changes in their lives. Family & Children Services is dedicated to – and known for – best practices in human-service delivery in the community. As a licensed child-placing agency, Family & Children Services provides assistance to individuals and families wishing to adopt children who are legally free for adoption. The underlying goal of Family & Children Services’ Adoption Program is to provide the most appropriate family for the child that meets the child’s needs and best interests. Family & Children Services is committed to the collaboration between birth parents, foster parents (which may include relative caregivers), prospective adoptive parents, social workers and the legal system in the identification of a family that will adopt should the child’s permanency goal become adoption. Biological parent(s) are encouraged to participate in the selection of the adoptive family, exchange identifying information, and maintain contact when determined to be in the best interest of the child. Additionally, continued contact with other members of the child’s family may be encouraged when considered to be in the best interest of the child. The primary goal of the Family & Children Services Adoption Program is to match and place children with adoptive parents who can provide a secure and nurturing environment where that child can progress mentally, physically, and socially. The goal is to place children with families who can make a “life time” commitment and appropriately manage the child’s behavior with positive disciplinary techniques.

CityLinC Youth Guidance Foster Care & Adoption

Battle Creek, MI 49017 | (269) 969-9438

Calhoun County has become a place of refuge for children from all across Michigan, thanks in part to CityLinC’s Youth Guidance Foster Care & Adoption program. We believe that children have a right to a stable, permanent home. Ideally, children should be raised by their biological parents in a nurturing environment. When parents are unable to meet these responsibilities, we help families get the additional resources they need. In some cases, this means placing the children in a loving foster care environment to provide necessary continuity, consistency and stability. In other cases, adoption may offer the best possible way to provide a secure future for high-risk children. CityLinC's Youth Guidance Foster Care & Adoption program is licensed by the state. We work with dozens of local families and hundreds of children from all over Michigan: All ages. All backgrounds. All shapes and sizes.
