Bethany in Des Moines
Since 1944, Bethany Christian Services has been reaching out to children who are alone or vulnerable. As a worldwide and community leader in adoption and family services, we know that a child's best chance to thrive is as part of a safe, loving, forever family.
What We Do in Des Moines, Iowa
Bethany’s ADOPTS program addresses the impact of traumatic experiences on children prior to adoption. Our therapists nurture children and their parents with support, education and caring intervention to help each family member thrive—not just survive.
Our goal is to help expectant parents, and the adoptive families they choose, to make the adoption plan that works best for them and the child they both love.
Many children around the world are waiting for a forever family. Their early lives have included things like orphanages, abandonment, malnutrition, and even abuse—but they can thrive in a loving and nurturing home. Can you open your heart and home to one of these children?
Whether you are an adoptive parent, a birthparent, or were adopted yourself, our staff will provide the support, information, and resources you need through our clinical counseling services.
We are here for you. The choices that you make will be life-changing and we are here to help support you. You are not alone.
