Family Builders


Family Builders is here to help find permanent, loving families for children and youth in the foster care system - that's our only goal. We connect children with individuals and couples who can provide safe, stable, nurturing families. Our services are free and confidential, and include adoption, foster care, and other forms of permanency. We have experience working with all types of children, youth, and families. Family Builders welcomes traditional families; single-parent families; both men and women; gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender families; transracial and multiracial families; and all other families as prospective adoptive parents. Family Builders is committed to serving all families equally with dignity and respect. We provide all services in English and Spanish and welcome monolingual Spanish-speaking families. We do not discriminate on the basis of the fact or perception of a person’s race, creed, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, age, height, weight, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, domestic partner status, parental status, marital status, veteran status, genetic information, medical status or disability, or Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome or HIV status. Family Builders has been providing services and programs for children and families since 1976. Our staff and board are made up of individuals who believe strongly that children have the right to a solid and loving family. We invite you to get to know who we are and to contact us to learn more about becoming a parent to child who needs a family. LGBT Families and Youth Family Builders is welcoming and affirming of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender families who wish to adopt children from the foster care system. More than half of Family Builders’ families are LGBT. We also recruit families who will best serve the needs of LGBTQ youth. Gay & Lesbian (LGBTQ) Friendly Adoption, Foster Care & Youth Services
