Every night, more than 2,000 children in our region go to sleep in state foster care without a family of their own. Since its founding three decades ago, Adoptions Together has welcomed every child in need of a family and helped women with unintended pregnancies plan for their future. All children, no matter their race, medical condition, or gender are served. No child is turned away. Finding parents for them, and nurturing their new families is central to the mission. Specializing in the complex needs of adoption, attachment, trauma, counseling and education services are provided throughout the region to all in need. During the pandemic, an increase in reported crises among families raising children with histories of trauma has meant wrapping additional levels of support around them. Creating stable families, especially in difficult times, is a challenge we must choose to meet.
