Since 1986 when Orchards Children’s Services first entered into the adoptions field, we have completed more than 3,000 adoptions. ¬†Although most of the children are adopted by their foster parents or relatives there is no typical adoptive family and there continues to be an ongoing need for families who are willing to adopt older children.

Orchards offers classes that explore the many issues and challenges that may arise as a child and family grow together. These classes are available free of charge to anyone who is interested.

Services to Children Who Have Been Available for More than One Year – ARC

Our ARC program (Adoption Resource Consultant) was established in 2010 to provide services to children in four southeastern counties who had been available for adoption for more than one year. ARC staff have specialized training in adoption and permanency planning and offer consultation to other agencies. Due to its success ARC services were expanded in 2012 to include all eligible youth throughout the state of Michigan. When an adoption ends, a family begins. Recognizing the need for a support system for adoptive families in Wayne and Oakland counties.
