An Individualized Parent-Child Approach

Catholic Human Services has been providing adoption services since 1980. We were pioneers and national leaders in the open adoption movement and have provided this approach to adoption longer than any other agency in the country. Simply put, open adoption promotes ongoing relationships between adopted children and their birth families. We are proud to have arranged close to 600 infant adoptions across northern Michigan.
