DFCS (Division of Family and Children Services - state of Georgia)
Adoption is defined as a social and legal process that creates a new family, giving adopted children the same rights and benefits as those born into the family. To children without a permanent family, adoption represents the hope for a better life. The Georgia Department of Human Services (DHS) is dedicated to finding loving homes for the numerous children in permanent state custody who are available for adoption. These children are often survivors of abuse, neglect or abandonment. Click here for more information.
The Christian Alliance for Orphans exists to motivate and unify the body of Christ to live out God's mandate to care for the orphan with the vision to have every orphan experience God's unfailing love and know Jesus as Savior. The Alliance represents an uncommon unity of many of the nation's most respected Christian organizations and churches.
