FOSTER CARE & ADOPTION

Foster Care & Adoption

We believe kids are meant to be raised in a home with loving parents. Some kids are blessed to receive that from birth and others need help finding it. Eagle Village is ready and able to offer that help through our Foster Care and Adoption Programs.

Foster Care

The Eagle Village Foster Care Program finds safe, temporary homes for children while their parents put the pieces of their lives back together.

Our team of experts works hard to find the right matches for foster families and foster kids. Families maintain the ability to say “yes” or “no” to any placement, can specify ages they are willing to accept, and will always have the full support of our team.

We walk families through licensing and monitor their cases closely to see where we can help.  We also provide ongoing trainings and put together events throughout the year to help build a whole community of people committed to helping kids by opening their homes.

Foster care is hard work- but it is worth it because these kids are worth it.

The state of Michigan has a need for more safe and loving foster care homes, especially for teens. Can you help? Call to talk to an expert, ask all of your questions, and learn about the difference you can make in the life of child at 231-305-6700.

Adoption

The Eagle Village Adoption Program works to find permanent, loving homes for children that will never be able to return to their biological families because regardless of age, gender, or ethnicity, every child deserves a place to call home.

You don’t have to own your own home, be married, or be the perfect parent to make a child feel welcome and wanted. The Eagle Village Adoption Program will walk you through every step of the process, answer any questions you have, get you licensed, and offer support even after the adoption has occurred.

A finalized adoption is a celebration day for our team. With 3,875 children in Michigan awaiting adoption we have a lot of potential celebrations to hold. We would love to celebrate your new family next.

Call 231-305-6700 or send us an email to talk about adoption options.

Our Foster Care & Adoption Team is ready to help. With years of experience and a heart for kids, these individuals offer compassionate and effective care to families.

Kathy | Community Based Services Coordinator

“I am dedicated to the mission of helping children and families. I enjoy helping the team get to know the families and what types of kids the families can work with. Each child should have a safe place for them to learn and grow, without fear. It is rewarding to hear about the kids who leave Eagle Village Foster Care and know that they are successful in life. Many are still in contact with their foster families.”

Heather | Foster Care & Adoption Program Manager

“Sometimes our job may seem like just a paper pusher… but then there are those times where we see the change [in children] or are reminded of the impact we made on the children and families and it refills our cup.”

Nicole | Licensing Supervisor

“Working with kids and families through Eagle Village is rewarding. Eagle Village provides services that help make it easier for families to reunite and is able to take the time to get to know the kids/families. I like being part of a team who care not only about the clients, but about the workers as well.”

Audrey | Foster Care Licensing Coordinator

“I understand the importance of having a nonjudgmental helping hand toward the kids and families we work with.”

Chelsey | Foster Care/Adoption Specialist

“I have always wanted to positively impact kids and their families. Every child deserves to smile, be happy and have a forever family. It makes me happy knowing that I can help make that happen.”

Tiffany | Foster Care/Adoption Specialist

“I want to be a positive support for all children and families to help them overcome any problems they may be dealing with.”

Brittney | Foster Care/Adoption Specialist

“I’ve always wanted to work with children. I want to be able to help them and make a difference in their life. Working with children and families through Eagle Village, I have gained more experience to help children and families grow, see their potential, and soar in life.”

Jennifer | Foster Care/Adoption Supervisor

“I knew that I wanted to work in the Human Service field when I was in Middle School, and I haven’t changed my mind since. Helping people is part of who I am.”

Rachel | Foster Care, Licensing, and Adoption Specialist

“Children are the future to everything in our world and they deserve to have the respect that comes with that. Their potential to do great things is powerful when they are made aware of it. It is through our work here at Eagle Village where we allow the kids and their families to realize that potential. I am blessed everyday to be able to work for such an amazing organization that realizes this and puts it as a priority.”

Allyson | Foster Care/Adoption Supervisor

“Family has always been and always will be an important thing to me and I want other kids to be able to say the same. Life always brings its fair share of struggles to every individual, some experience more struggles than others, and it is my job to help alleviate some of those. I especially want the kids to know that what they are going through won’t be forever. I want kids to know they’re loved and to feel safe. As both a foster care and adoption worker, I want every single family to know that I am here to help and guide them.”
