CHRIS Adoptions & Foster Care
We specialize in helping families who wish to adopt children and
sibling groups from the foster care system.
We partner with state agencies to develop improved kinship initiatives to
expand searches for family members once a child enters care.
No child is un-adoptable
The guiding principle at CHRIS 180 is that
every child is adoptable.
Many of the children we help are older or are siblings for whom adoption outcomes statistically pale in comparison to their counterparts in foster care who are younger and have fewer emotional, mental health, and developmental issues. A goal for every child served through CHRIS Adoptions & Foster Care is a Forever Family.
Our organization works to recruit and educate families on the emotional, behavioral, and mental health needs that children who are being adopted and fostered out of the foster care system may have experienced.
CHRIS 180's goals include:
Increase the successful adoption rate for children in foster care
Increase kinship networks and resources for family members of children in care
Increase the number of adopted high needs foster care youth aged nine through seventeen
Giving each child and family member a voice in the adoption process
Educate families and community providers about the impact of trauma on child development and attachment
Prepare and support families, so that they are equipped with the tools they need create a strong forever family.
Create a sense of community and support for all of our families and children
