The ‘r kids Family Center is a non-profit organization committed to providing specialized, high quality services to children and families. Founded in New Haven, Connecticut in 1996, ‘r kids Family Center’s objective is permanency, safety and stability for vulnerable children and their families.
The ‘r kids Family Center is licensed by the State of Connecticut, Department of Children and Families and offers a full range of adoption services, including home study and approval for domestic adoptions; pre-adoption counseling for birth and adoptive families that promotes planful decision-making; coordination and assistance in locating available children when requested; and post-placement supervision and completion of the legal process to finalize an adoption.
The ‘r kids Family Center works collaboratively and efficiently with both in-state and out-of-state child welfare and adoption agencies to facilitate timely placement of children through domestic adoption and *international adoptions.
