INFORMATION ON FOSTER CARE & ADOPTION SERVICES

Families First: Adoption Services

  • Adoption Support - Each year, the agency helps thousands of individuals and couples navigate through the challenging adoption process. Families First empowers prospective parents by conducting a home study, providing support services after they bring their child home, and offering informational seminars and classes. In addition, Families First offers Parents in Process (PIP) classes and seminars. These classes are designed to help prepare families for adoptive parenthood and provide an opportunity to meet other prospective parents who have similar issues and concerns.
  • Adoption Search and Reunion - This is a state-wide program that provides services to birth parents, adopted persons, adoptive parents and siblings. Services include non-identifying information to adult adopted persons and parents of minors, search services to adult adopted persons and adult siblings, registration services to birth parents, and counseling and intermediary services.
  • Georgia Center For Resources & Support - The Georgia Center for Resources and Support is a statewide project funded by the Georgia Department of Human Resources and operated by Families First and Bethany Christian Services. The mission of the Center is to establish a seamless, comprehensive support network of post placement services to strengthen adoptive and foster families throughout Georgia. To contact the center, call toll free 1-866-A-PARENT or visit the Web site www.gacrs.org.

  • Families First: Foster Care - There are thousands of children in the foster care system in Georgia, and not nearly enough homes to provide the temporary love and care they desperately need. Families First provides foster families the tools they need to be successful including: free training, support services, 24 hour accessibility to licensed social workers, free yearly physicals for the children and five days of respite.
  • Foster to Adopt - Usually a foster child returns to his or her birth parents as situations improve. However, when parental rights have been terminated and no other option exists, the child can be available for adoption. Families First can support foster parents through the adoption process.
