Child & Family

We are committed to creating better futures for Michigan children.

Guided by the belief that every child deserves a safe, permanent, and loving family where they can grow up to be happy and productive members of their communities, Judson Center has been providing family focused services since 1924 in family preservation, foster care and adoption.

The Judson Center family is committed to providing a safe, supportive and a loving home to all children. We are people focused and strive for excellence in all we do. Please consider joining our family as a foster or adoptive parent, a mentor  or a volunteer. Help us continue building brighter futures for children and families.

Every child deserves a safe and nurturing home where they can grow, and Judson Center does just that.

Child / Family FAQ

The first step is to contact us. Our knowledgeable staff will answer your questions, send you an informational packet and get you signed up for a 2019 Orientation Schedule.

There are several types of adoptions, including adoption from foster care, domestic or infant, international and step-parent adoption. Adoption from foster care refers to children who have entered the child welfare system due to abuse, neglect, abandonment or death of a parent. Often times children return to their biological parents when it’s deemed safe. Sometimes, however, reunification cannot occur and a child’s parental rights are terminated by the court. It is at that time that the child becomes available for adoption.

There are plenty of ways to support children and families involved in the child welfare system! Whether it’s mentoring a child, providing toys all year round or donating household items to a family in need, every effort makes a huge difference.

Child / Family Resources

In addition to traditional adoption services, Judson Center provides an array of supportive services to help children find their forever families and to give families the support they need to thrive.
