Pregnancy and Adoptions

Every life is valuable. We understand not everyone is ready to be a parent. Our Pregnancy and Adoptions program facilitates private adoptions between birth parents and adoptive parents. We also recruit, train and license adoptive parents.

If you are facing a crisis pregnancy, please contact our Sanctuaries for Life program.


Pregnancy Counseling Services: We provide counseling to pregnant women who are facing an unintended pregnancy, as well as to expectant fathers.

Birth Parents: We can help facilitate an adoption to ensure your child is placed with a loving and nurturing family. Please call us today to learn more.

Prospective Foster Parents: We provide training, home study and licensing to prepare you to become a temporary, pre-adopt foster parents.

Prospective Adoptive Parents: If you are considering becoming an adoptive parent, we provide information, training, a home study and licensing to adopt and raise a child.

Home Study Services: We also offer home study services for domestic and international adoptions by a licensed social worker.  Please call us today to learn more. 

Adoption Record Searches:  We maintain extensive records for each person we place into an adoptive home, knowing their health records, family history and other information will be important as they grow. With proper consent and identification, information from these records is available to adults who were adopted through Catholic Charities. Please call for more information.
