Join an Adoption Support Group

Because we recognize that being on an adoption journey can be a positive, yet challenging experience, we offer support groups throughout the state. Support groups provide a safe and non-judgmental place to connect with other adoptive parents experiencing similar challenges and successes. Villages support groups are facilitated by staff members with guest speakers on occasion.

Consider joining our Villages Adoption Support Group on Facebook. This closed, secure group is a safe place to ask questions and gain support from other adoptive parents and Villages staff.

We are now offering statewide virtual support groups. Any adoptive parent, regardless of where you live in the state, can register for our Statewide Virtual Support Groups. See below for specific times and who to contact.
