Our Mission

Caring for Kids, Inc. is a private non-profit, full-service adoption and foster care agency serving the entire state of Ohio. We believe that every child, regardless of gender, race, nationality, age, or special need, deserves a family.

Through education and support, Caring for Kids, Inc. is dedicated to creating stability for children and families.

My experience with Caring for Kids was great! I was provided a great deal of support by my caseworker, who was available to me whenever I needed her. I had the opportunity to work with the executive director; her wisdom and personal experience helped guide me through the adoption process. I was impressed that she took the time out of her busy schedule to meet with me on a weekly basis. The name of the agency should speak for itself.
