Hamilton County Adoption and Foster Care

   Connect With Us


Welcome to HCKids

HCKids is dedicated to finding loving, devoted, and supportive forever families for the children available for adoption in Hamilton County foster care.

We invite you to explore our site to find out more about how to become an adoptive parent and to learn more about the kids searching for their forever family.


About the children

The majority of children available for adoption through HCJFS are over the age of ten. While we don't usually have infants and toddlers, they may come to us as part of sibling sets.

All of our children have experienced some level of abuse or neglect.

But despite their troubled lives, most of the children in our custody are much like any others. They laugh and play, and they have favorite toys, games and friends. They also have hopes and dreams for their futures - especially for permanent, loving and committed parents.

You can help their dream
come true!
