A child who grows up without the love and comfort of a family continues to face poverty and other challenges. Wide Horizons For Children programs help empower and stabilize at-risk families so they remain together. In Ethiopia, Guatemala and India, our Family Strengthening programs provide a path to a better future for thousands of children.
For a child who is orphaned and abandoned, living each day without a family presents unimaginable challenges. Every child deserves love and care, no matter how complex their medical needs or where they live. Wide Horizons For Children supports privately run orphanages, trains older women or “grannies” to nurture younger children who are in institutional care and provides job skills training to older children aging out of orphanages.
Imagine the possibilities when you make a life-changing decision to adopt a child. Wide Horizons For Children is one of the nation’s leading child welfare and adoption agencies, and our experts have helped grow families all over the world. We’ve placed more than 13,000 children from nearly 60 countries with permanent, loving families.
Because every adoption journey is unique and lasts a lifetime, Wide Horizons For Children offers a range of services to adopted persons, adoptive parents and birth parents, long after the point of placement. Our clinically trained social workers are highly knowledgeable about the adoption experience and the unique needs of adoptive and birth families.
