About the kids

Get Started Here

A new look at family.

Most of the kids in agency care who are available and waiting for adoption in Hamilton County are older than 10. Younger kids usually are adopted by their extended family or their foster parents. The younger kids who are available for adoption are typically parts of sibling groups.

Providing safety for children with a rough past.

The children in agency care have experienced some level of abuse or neglect, or they come from families who are not able to care for them because of unfortunate circumstances. Being in foster care has allowed HCJFS to provide for their safety and well-being.

Enjoying childhood among adversity.

But in spite of all they’ve been through, the children in agency care are much like any others. They like to hang out with their friends, they have favorite toys and TV shows.

Giving hope to a brighter future.

They also have hopes and dreams – especially for permanent, loving families that will provide them with the safety, stability and unconditional commitment that they deserve.
