Uniting children with loving families
Children’s Home & Aid has provided adoption services to children and families since 1883. Last year alone, nearly 300 children and families were affected by our adoption preservation services. More than 100 children annually are adopted through Children’s Home & Aid programs.
There are many children waiting for permanent homes with loving mothers and fathers to care for them. Some are under the protection of the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services and range in age from infant to 18 years. Some of these children need special medical care or have developmental, emotional, or physical needs. There are brothers and sisters who need to stay together.
The experienced Children’s Home & Aid adoption case workers carefully match prospective parents with children based on the individual needs of the child and the parent’s capabilities. These professionals serve to guide and support parents through the entire adoption process and beyond.
