  • Description
  • For over 30 years, CHRIS Kids has been dedicated to helping abused and neglected children with emotional and behavioral problems who are in foster care. We found that far too many of these children were further traumatized by an adoption that failed and resulted in their return to state custody. We wanted to do something. Then in 2011, a small adoption agency, The Giving Tree, approached CHRIS Kids seeking “adoption”. In The Giving Tree, CHRIS Kids saw the opportunity to build on its strengths, commitment to inclusiveness dedication to eliminate adoption barriers, and to leverage its mission for the development of a trauma informed model of adoptions that would increase the permanency of adoptions. In short, we saw potential to be unlocked so that children could truly be adopted in to safe, loving, permanent families. After a period of “visitation and placement,” The Giving Tree was adopted by CHRIS Kids into our Family of Services on January 1, 2013.
