DePelchin Children’s Center believes that every child deserves to be safe and healthy. An accredited foster care and adoption agency with an expertise in trauma, DePelchin serves its community’s most vulnerable children and families and works to break the cycles of abuse and neglect. Our approach to caring for kids integrates at-risk prevention, foster care, adoption and post-adoption programs to improve the mental health and physical well-being of children at-risk or within the State’s child welfare system.
DePelchin’s services include:
DePelchin partners with couples and individuals wanting to provide foster care for children removed from their birth families because of abuse, neglect or abandonment.
DePelchin supports couples and individuals wanting to adopt children who are in the custody of Child Protective Services and need a permanent, loving home.
DePelchin offers post-adoption support to adoptees, birth parents and adoptive families.
DePelchin offers parent education to help parents build and maintain healthy relationships with their children and work through family challenges.
DePelchin’s prevention and early intervention services work to strengthen and support children and families while decreasing the future need for more intensive services.
DePelchin's residential treatment program treats children and adolescents in the foster care system who are suffering from severe mental, emotional or behavioral problems.
