Lutheran Adoption Service - Kalamazoo

Kalamazoo, MI 49008 | (269) 345-5776

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.

Family & Children Services, Inc. - Kalamazoo

Kalamazoo, MI 49001 | (269) 344-0202

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.
