NURTURING

Become a CHRIS 180 foster or adoptive parent. Open your home to a child escaping abuse, neglect or abandonment.

Through the CHRIS Adoptions & Foster Care Program we provide trauma-informed services for families and children throughout the fostering and adoption process, while acting as a continuous advocate and resource.
We know you need support and we are here for you!

CHRIS 180 Adoption and Foster Care trains, approves, and supports new and existing foster and/or adoptive parents seeking to help children in state custody find a safe and loving home.

We specialize in:

  • Therapeutic foster care.

  • Children ages 9-18 in the custody of Georgia Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS).

  • Both in-state and out-of-state adoptions for children in state custody.

  • Sibling groups from the foster care system. 

  • Difficult to place children.

We partner with state agencies to develop improved kinship initiatives to expand searches for family members once a child enters care.
