Adoption / Maternity / Infant Foster Care Programs






Catholic Charities commits itself
to the philosophy that every child has a right to a permanent loving home.  Our efforts are directed toward finding a family for any child in need of a home, regardless of the special needs that may be involved.
 
Adoption Services are provided for those seeking to open their homes and hearts to adoptable children. Families are especially needed for older children, children of minority or mixed racial heritage, and children with special medical needs. 

Our programs do not discriminate agains persons based on race, age, residence, creed, religion or socio-economic status.


Our Adoption Services Include:
  • Domestic and International Adoption Home Studies
  • Pre and post placement services for adoptive families
  • Services to birth parents
  • Counseling which is available to the adopted child, adoptive parents, and birth parents before and after adoptive placement.
  • Domestic Placement Services

Maternity Services

 
Maternity Services provide caring and hope during unplanned pregnancies by exploring choices and decision-making. Confidential counseling is provided on  alternatives to abortion, exploring parenting options, family support, and adoption services. Referrals for medical care, housing assistance, and other resources are provided on a case by case basis.

Infant Foster Care Services

Infant Foster Care for children awaiting adoption is also part of our ministry to children.  If you would like to become a foster care parent, please contact the adoption program at (601) 960-8649.

Post Adoption Services

Post Adoption Services are offered in Accordance to the Adoption Confidentiality Act.  Adoptees who are 18 or older may request non-identifying information on themselves.  If the adoptee is 21 or older, a search may be conducted by the agency for the purpose of further information and/or reunion with the birth parents.
