Applewood Centers Inc. - Foster Care and Adoption Program

Cleveland, OH 44102 | (216) 696-6815

Becoming a foster parent is a very special decision to make. Applewood Centers has been dedicated to the care of children since 1886 and we take pride in providing the tools and support to help our foster parents become successful caregivers for children and teens during their time of need. Homes are needed to care for children of all ages, sibling groups and those with behavioral/mental health needs. Becoming a foster parent is not a job, it is community outreach. Unfortunately, children arrive into our care as a result of many issues including, but not limited, neglect, abuse (physical, emotional, sexual) or an unsafe environment. Regardless of the circumstances surrounding why they have come into care, these are still children in need of a community's care. These children are in need of people, such as yourself, to "show you care" by becoming a foster parent.

Beech Brook - Foster Care and Adoption

Cleveland, OH 44124 | (216) 831-2255

Beech Brook has one of the largest foster care programs in the Cleveland area, providing foster care information, training and support for those wishing to become a foster parent and change the life of a child forever. When children must be taken from their families, whether temporarily or permanently, Beech Brook’s network of family and treatment foster homes provide a 24-hour therapeutic environment where healing can begin. More than ever before, children coming into foster care are increasingly troubled, with multiple problems stemming from chronic abuse and neglect, exposure to violence or parental drug and alcohol addiction. Far too many have been moved from place to place, leaving them feeling unwanted, angry and hopeless about their futures.

The Adoption Center at Bellefaire JCB

Cleveland, OH 44118 | (216) 932-2800

Adoption provides children with the love and permanency they need and deserve.

Bellefaire JCB is one of the nation's largest, longest-established child placement/adoption agencies. Our adoption specialists are degreed, licensed social workers and certified adoption assessors.

Cuyahoga County Department of Children and Family Services - Adoption

Cleveland, OH 44115 | (216) 431-4500

Adoption is the permanent, legal transfer of all parental rights and responsibilities from one family to another family. Adoptive parents have the same rights and responsibilities as parents whose children are born to them. It is the first step to a lifelong commitment of sharing your life with a child who is in need of a family that will keep him/her safe. These are children who could not be returned to their families. Some of these children are older, or are part of a sibling group that needs to be together, some have physical, emotional or medical issues which require loving attention. Over 81 percent of these children are African American. Persons must be 18 and over to adopt. You must have sufficient income to meet your own basic needs and be in good physical, emotional and mental health. You can be single, married, divorced or legally separated with documentation. There are no educational or religious requirements and home ownership is not necessary.
