The GHDS Division of Family and Children Services is a dedicated agency that finds a loving home for children who have been victims of abuse, neglect and abandonment. Most children staying in the agency fall under the Special Needs category. The Family and Children Services is the main agency responsible for educating the public about adoption of children in permanent care of the GHDS.
When the GHDS temporarily separates children from abusive families, the agency sends them to an interim living arrangement, such as the United Methodist Children's Home. It serves as a foster care home and helps restore the harmony in families by providing therapeutic and educational family interventions. Foster families receive per diem for each child they take in under their care.
Bethany Christian Services is also affiliated with the GHDS and works in partnership with Families First, another adoption service that manages the Georgia Center for Resources and Support. The BCS provides professional counseling and help to pregnant women and families who are considering putting children in adoptive care or childless parents who are considering adoption. The BCS also provides child protection services, counseling and adoption services in many regions in the world.Learn more about Adoption
