DePelchin partners with couples and individuals through its foster care program who can provide temporary care for children until they can return home safely. While some children are able to be reunited with their birth families, there are many children who are unable to be reunited and are ‘legally free’ for adoption. Through its adoption program, DePelchin supports couples and individuals wanting to adopt children who are in the care of Child Protective Services and need a loving forever family.

At DePelchin, we are also committed to helping kinship caregivers provide the best care for their families so that children can stay connected with biological family even when they cannot live with their birth parents. One way we do this is by guiding kinship caregivers along the path to becoming a kinship foster family so that they will qualify to receive the therapeutic and financial support they need to care for the children in their home.

DePelchin Children’s Center believes every child deserves a safe and loving home. That’s why DePelchin supports its families every step of the way.
