Bethany in Knoxville
Since 1944, Bethany Christian Services has been reaching out to vulnerable children. 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. We serve individuals and families throughout the Knoxville, Tri-Cities, and surrounding East Tennessee counties. If you are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy, seeking temporary respite for children through our Safe Families for Children program, or if you are looking to grow your family through adoption, we are here in East Tennessee to partner with you along your journey.
What We Do in Knoxville, Tennessee
Children in foster care have faced hardship and pain during their lives. When returning to their biological family is not an option, they need a safe place to call home, with a family to provide them with the love and care. There are more than 100,000 children in foster care who are available for adoption and they are waiting for a family like yours.
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 is dedicated to supporting you by providing you with 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.
A national movement of compassion that helps families and children in crisis. This network of volunteer host families help parents who need to temporarily place their children due to unmanageable or critical circumstances.
