Agencies

You have a choice. We can help.

Families interested in adopting a child from the foster care system choose the agency with which they want to work. A variety of factors may influence that decision. These factors may include:

  1. the area of the state in which you live;
  2. the type of child whose needs you best meet;
  3. your interest in fostering; and
  4. your own personal preferences or past experience with an agency.

Adopt Kansas Kids can assist you in examining your options.
