The Crossroads Foster Care & Adoption Program, launched in 2018, is designed to find and equip wonderful families for children in need of a loving home. Each family is given specialized care and attention to ensure adequate training and support. Permanency is the ultimate goal for each child through either reunification with the child’s birth family or adoption.

If you are interested in exploring whether foster care is right for you, download this self-assessment questionnaire. To apply to be a foster caregiver or adoptive parent, contact Michaela Guthrie at mguthrie@christiancity.org.
