Adoption, Foster Care & Fertility
Clermont for Kids educates the community about foster care and adoption and recruits new foster and foster to adopt families for Clermont County Children’s Services. Foster Care is temporary care provided to children in need. Being a foster parent is one of the most rewarding investments a family can make. Your family interests and hobbies coupled with the training you receive will well equip you for being a foster parent. Children grow best in families. As a foster parent you can help a child reach his or her full potential. Please feel free to get more information from our website: clermontforkids.org or contact us at (513) 732-7765.

Most of our kids who are available and waiting for adoption in Hamilton County are older than 10. Younger kids usually are adopted by their extended family or their foster parents. The younger kids who are available for adoption are typically parts of sibling groups. The children in our care have experienced some level of abuse or neglect, or they come from families who are not able to care for them because of unfortunate circumstances. Being in foster care has allowed HCJFS to provide for their safety and well-being. But in spite of all they’ve been through, the children in our care are much like any others. They like to hang out with their friends, they have favorite toys and TV shows. They also have hopes and dreams – especially for permanent, loving families that will provide them with the safety, stability and unconditional commitment that they deserve. They need you now.
