Adoptions and Family Support Network

 

Adoptions & Family Support Network, Inc. is a nonprofit, licensed child placing agency. Our mission is to provide support, aid, counseling, placement and adoption services to children and families in need of assistance. In addition to complementing resources already in the community, our staff strives to develop genuine caring relationships with each family by working in real and tangible ways to improve their quality of life. Adoptions & Family Support Network, Inc. was started after the board members worked together for over 10 years in the areas of adoption, family services, medical aid and foreign missions. We have been blessed to be able to witness lives being changed after connecting people with needs to people who can help. We believe that everyone experiences a time or two in their life when they could use a little help or support. Our desire is to provide assistance, guidance, and support to any individual who may need help with building or enriching their family.
