Adoption, whether public or private, gives a child a good home. The adoptive family gets to experience the joy of expanding their family to help a child in need and to see them thrive!
Our post-permanency services support the child and family after the adoption or permanent legal guardianship has taken place. We also encourage foster parents to allow their home to be a permanent family home.
We gladly offer all the training and support that foster parents need and answer all the questions they may have. We accept children for placement from birth to age 21 for placement.
While our main focus is finding people wanting to become foster parents, we also offer adoption services and various services to support our foster parents.

Their genuine care for our case and understanding of our unique circumstances was remarkable.Thanks to the staff's expertise and dedication, we navigated the process smoothly and confidently. Their knowledge, combined with their compassion, made all the difference." - The Gottshalks from Washington County"As former adoptive parents and current foster parents, Lifespan helped our dreams come true! We always wanted a family but were unable to do so on our own. We have fostered and helped families reunify, and we have also gotten the biggest blessing of our life when we got to adopt our first son. We still continue to give children a safe place to call home and can’t wait to expand our family once more." - The Overlys from Punxsutawney
