Foster care and adoption services that make it easier to make a difference.

Foster Care & Adoption

Navigating the world of foster care and adoption can be filled with both challenges and profound emotions. At Alliance Human Services, we hold a strong belief that every child deserves a secure and loving home.

By opening your home to a child in need, you can make a lasting difference. We’re here to support you throughout the entire process, ensuring that it goes as smoothly as possible.

Our organization serves children of all ages, each with a unique background. Many of the children have faced trauma and adversity and come with various challenges. Some may have emotional or behavioral challenges, medical or special needs. Despite their past, these children are in search of caring families to help them grow and reach their full potential.

Learn how you can make a difference.

Children come into care when it’s determined that they cannot remain with their biological families. Many have experienced unsuccessful placements in the past or have come from more restrictive settings. Through Alliance Human Services, the children find stability and the chance for a permanent placement that suits their individual needs.

As a foster parent, you’ll be an independent contractor and will receive a stipend to assist with the costs of caring for a child. The amount varies based on the child’s needs and the state you reside in. Your decision to open you heart and home can provide a child with a brighter future and a sense of belonging.

We’re here to support foster families.

At Alliance, our caring and experienced team is here to support you on your foster parent journey. An experienced and compassionate case worker will be assigned to you and the child in your care and will make regular home visits to oversee growth and progress toward goals. We support our foster and adoption families by ensuring the children in their care receive the services they need for their success including:


Case coordination services for children and foster parents.


Educational support for children and foster parents.

Respite Care

Temporary placement in respite homes.


Coordination of ongoing individual or group counseling and therapy, as needed.

Take the first step.

Select a location nearest to you to get started. Whether you are new to foster care and adoption, or have some experience, we can help you through the logistics of gifting these children with a home that is safe, nurturing, and supportive.

Great support from the staff. Unbelievable camaraderie regarding the foster parent meetings and outings… For us, it is a family affair since most of our family members are foster parents.
