Bethany in Muskegon
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 Muskegon, Michigan
There is a growing need for families willing to open their hearts and homes to children and teenagers who have been removed from their families because of neglect or abuse. These children need a loving family who will walk with them during a time of crisis and welcome them unconditionally into a caring home. The highest-priority need is for foster homes for sibling groups and children from minority groups.
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.
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.
Often refugee families are separated between the time they leave their home and when they arrive in the U.S. When this happens, family reunification is difficult and children are considered unaccompanied minors. The only option for these children is to be cared for by a refugee foster care family.
