Child & Family

Every child deserves the love of a caring family and the hope of a bright future

Every child deserves a safe and nurturing home where they can grow.

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 2015, we joined forces with Child Safe Michigan to provide an even greater scope of services with the addition of mentoring and the expansion of foster care and adoption services and family preservation services.

Child & Family FAQ

The first step is to contact us. Our knowledgeable staff will answer your foster care questions, send you an informational packet and get you signed up for a 2022 Foster Parent 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.
