Are You Ready To Open Your Home And Heart To A Child In Care? We’re Here To Help.
Providence Place serves families who share the belief that all children deserve a loving family and a happy home
What we Offer:
• Private Adoption: Our adoption program helps provide permanent homes and loving families for children born in the United States. We are a leader in Open Adoption and believe it’s the healthiest option for everyone involved.
• DFPS Foster Care and Adoption: Our DFPS Foster Care and Adoption program was developed out of the belief that all children, whether they are older, are part of a sibling group, have special needs, or are an ethnic minority, deserve a home and a supportive, loving family.
• Adoption Information Sessions. This will give you an opportunity to learn more about the process and discuss which program you might be most interested in. We are here to answer any questions you might have.

Regardless of the type of adoption you decide to pursue, we will guide and support you along the way. We want you, as an adoptive family, to feel supported through all the required paperwork, creation of an adoption profile, and will help you deal with the ups and downs of the adoption process, as well as assisting in any post-adoption challenges.
