Most people think of foster care and adoption when they hear our name, but we have a number of programs that might surprise you. We help survivors of child sex trafficking, adults with disabilities, immigrants fleeing violence, people wanting to break addictive behaviors, and families trying to stay together. You’ll find us in Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Texas, Mississippi, Central America, with offices in Chicago and Washington D.C. Our independent, faith-based nonprofit has been helping children and families since 1945. And we’re here for you.
