Services Provided:  New Directions Foster Care and Adoption Services provides a temporary, supportive environment for children who either have no family resources, or who, for a variety of reasons cannot live with their birth families. During their time with us, we identify and prepare a permanent home for children freed for adoption, or help birth families heal and develop a safe, nurturing environment to which their children can return. When children are freed for adoption, we actively engage families seeking to adopt and assist them through the process.
