Foster Care and Adoption
BCFS has been a leading foster care and adoption agency for 65 years. We have helped thousands of houses become homes, and adults become parents. If you’ve ever thought about becoming a foster parent or adopting, now is the time.

Family Support Systems
Since children don’t come with instruction manuals, BCFS offers guidance and training to new parents and established families. Lessons teach parents how to properly care for their children and encourage developmental growth, and helps families communicate and mitigate conflict.
Precious Minds New Connections
For four decades, Head Start has propelled children from disadvantaged backgrounds toward success and prosperity. The national program raises the bar not just for all students so that our future leaders will have a strong foundation built on academic achievement and healthy living.
International Foster Care Sponsorship
While uncommon in America, many countries throughout the world still place children and youths who are abused or neglected, or have lost their parents in orphanages. Some countries struggle with even less sophisticated foster care systems. With the help of sponsors, BCFS’ overseas division, Children’s Emergency Relief International, works to find kinship homes for children so they may have the opportunity to stay close to family members, rather than growing up alone in a communal home.
Counseling for Children and Families
BCFS’ counselors offer solution-focused psychological and counseling services to children and families.
