We see adoption as a loving choice. Catholic Charities West Michigan walks alongside all members of the adoption triad—birth parents, adoptive parents, and especially the child—with a commitment to love and respect for everyone involved.
Our goal in foster care is reunification of the child with the birth family. For over 50 years, we have been working with foster families whose love and support have allowed many children and teens to have loving adults on their side.

We understand the value of seniors in our community. Our mission is to engage persons ages 55+ in volunteer service to meet critical community needs through the One Township at a Time program, Foster Grandparent program and Senior Companion Program of the AmeriCorps.
We assist and support “at risk” families through strength-based, solution-focused counseling and family preservation services. Families learn to reduce risks, resolve differences, and improve interactions so that they can flourish.
