Foster Care

Being a Koinonia parent means you will be a part of an organization with very high standards and expertise in helping children in need. Children in foster care have been exposed to various forms of trauma; our staff is here to equip you to help these children heal and thrive.

As a Koinonia parent, you might be the first person in a child’s life to truly love and care for them.


Koinonia’s Adoption Program primarily assists families who are interested in the private adoption process. We also assist families who wish to adopt through the foster care system (also known as fost-adopt). In cases where reunification is not possible, our adoption program staff work in partnership with our foster care program staff to provide a waiting child with a loving, permanent family. The fost-adopt process substantially reduces the costs usually associated with adoption and helps the children who need it most.
