Bethany Christian Services is a global nonprofit organization that brings families together and keeps families together. Our mission is to demonstrate the love and compassion of Jesus Christ by protecting and enhancing the lives of children and families through quality social services. Every child deserves a loving family—that’s where children thrive best—but so many children don’t have this blessing. At Bethany, we believe a safe, loving family is a simple, proven, lasting answer to a child’s needs. We have free, confidential counseling for women and men of all ages who are considering parenting and adoption for their child. We will listen, answer their questions, support, educate, advocate for them, and respect their decision.  We provide services that include: pregnancy counseling, domestic adoption services, and independent domestic adoption home studies.

Child Saving Institute 

At CSI, we believe in the right of each child to have a childhood–a safe, happy time to learn and grow. Unfortunately, not every child in our community has a good experience during this amazing period from birth to adulthood, and that’s where we come in. CSI provides vital services to children and families. We serve pregnant women and young parents. We help young adults acquire the skills they need to transition to independence. We serve foster parents and biological parents to help them learn the skills they need for family well-being. And we work with kids, all kinds of kids–babies, toddlers, elementary-aged, junior high and high school–to ensure all children in our community are safe, well-cared-for and loved.

Sometimes, in the face of abuse and neglect, it can be a daunting task, but the rewards of success–a child’s smile, a baby’s chuckle, a teen’s nod of accomplishment–make the journey well worth it.

All children deserve to grow up in a good home. When a child cannot be returned to his or her original family, adoption becomes the goal.

The goal of adoption is to provide a child with a family for the rest of their life. Adoption is the means of transferring to a child and parents all the legal rights that they would have if that child had been born to them.

The value of adoption is that it provides a child with the basic needs: legal status, social status, and a family of their own.
