National Adoption Month is an annual campaign sponsored by the Children’s Bureau of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in partnership with Child Welfare Information Gateway and AdoptUSKids.
Thousands of teenagers across the country are at risk of aging out of the foster care system without permanent families or a sense of belonging. Often youth themselves are reluctant to consider adoption or other permanency because of trauma they’ve experienced, conflicting loyalties to family and caregivers, or fear of lost identity. Yet studies show lifelong connection to a caring adult is critical at every age.
Please visit the Children's Bureau website to find important resources and tools to learn more about how to achieve better outcomes for children and youth in need of finding their “forever family.”
Since 1998, North Homes has successfully provided adoption services for children from birth to age 17, under State or Tribal guardianship.
As a Public Private Adoption Initiative (PPAI) agency, North Homes focuses on the placement of children 12 and older. Grant funding from the Minnesota Department of Human Services allows North Homes to offer, at virtually no cost, adoptive placement and child specific services to Minnesota children and families through the Minnesota Waiting Program.
