Adoption Services


Adopting children is a natural way to create a family. For thousands of years, children have been welcomed into families not biologically tied to them. CHS has been a part of the adoption process for over 120 years. Whether you have experienced infertility, want to add to an already existing family or feel a commitment to help children in need, adoption may be the right answer for you.

Since 1891, our compassionate staff has been connecting children with safe, permanent and loving homes. Whether you are considering making an adoption plan for your child or building a family by adopting children, we are here to help. Our goal is to provide services to ensure children are welcomed into families who are prepared to meet all the demands of parenting so that each child may grow and develop to his or her fullest potential.

We provide Adoption Home Studies (infant, foster, and special needs), Pregnancy Counseling, Post-Placement Supervision, Domestic Adoption Services, Search and ongoing Adoption Competent Counseling to all members of the adoption circle.
