About Us

Our inspiration comes from the belief that "There are no unwanted children… just unfound families”. From that perspective we provide the following free adoptive services: Public Awareness & Recruitment, Information & Referral and Matching Events & Advocacy. We are here to bring attention to the need for adoptive homes for children living in foster care. We help agencies recruit on behalf of their waiting children. We seek to match prospective adoptive families with appropriate adoption agencies.

Success Stories

Lanier and Adam worked hard to show her love and accept her as their own.  With much dedication, support, and perseverance, they have proven to Alexis that they are worthy of her love.  Lanier empathically told Alexis “this is your last stop”.  Since then, Alexis has dramatically improved in all areas, including school.

The Anchor Project

contributed by our Program Director, Christine Jacobs
The Adoption Center has never had a program devoted to creating mentor relationships for youth in foster care --but soon we will! To build the most robust program we can we have been researching the best practices in the field by talking with colleagues who have their own mentor programs for youth in foster care, reading all that we can about other mentoring programs, participating in mentoring-focused conferences and training with MENTOR, the National Mentoring Partnership.
