Foster Care & Adoptions

Overview

At McKinley Children’s Center, we believe every child deserves the best life possible. It’s that philosophy that has led to the creation of our Foster Family & Adoptions Agency. Through this program, we provide loving homes and better opportunities to those children who have neither. Our foster children are placed in foster homes throughout the community, where the foster parents are highly trained and deeply compassionate. Additionally, we help both the child and the parents through the oft-difficult adoptions process, and we assist in providing reimbursement to foster parents who have provided homes for our children. Our friendly, helpful, bi-lingual staff is available 24/7 to handle any of your or your child’s needs.

The Foster Family & Adoptions Agency is nationally accredited—meaning that we meet nationally recognized best practice standards—and we are backed by a strong organization that has been serving the community for over 100 years.

Once a child is placed, regular home visits by the McKinley staff ensure our parents and children have all the resources necessary to be happy and successful. Special activities are also available, and we provide intensive, interactive training on an on-going basis, to ensure everyone involved has the best chance of success. McKinley also prides itself on being non-judgmental when it comes to your marital status, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, gender expression, or religion – we just want the parents and the children to be happy and to share healthy relationships.

And for the prospective foster parents, McKinley provides reimbursement to parents so that it’s easier for them to take on a McKinley child. It’s really a win-win situation for everyone.
