Diakon Adoption & Foster Care

Diakon Adoption & Foster Care has one goal: To bring permanence to the lives of waiting children and youths. Through foster care, foster-to-adopt (legal-risk placements), and special needs and domestic adoption, we focus on uniting children and youths with forever families.

Caring for children and youths for nearly 150 years

Our heritage of service to children and youths dates to 1868, testament to our ability to meet changing needs. In that transition, we became a national model for adoption of children with special needs. Today, we implement leading-edge ideas to serve a wide range of children in foster care, children available for adoption, and older youths facing limited options—as well as the families who make their worlds whole.
