At any given time in the state of Georgia there are over 8,000 children in foster care. Of these 8,000 children, approximately 250 in need of permanent loving homes. Many of them are members of sibling groups, older children, children of color and many of these children are without an adoptive home. 

This November, Chattooga County Department of Family and Children Services is joining thousands of individuals, government agencies, and child advocacy organizations across the nation in promoting National Adoption Month with various events throughout the region.  The theme for this year’s observance is “Build Capacity to Make Lasting Change.” Join us as we celebrate the families who have adopted and work with us as we seek to find permanent homes for children who need forever families.

For additional information on becoming an adoptive parent, call 1-877-210-KIDS or contact Chattooga County Department of Family and Children Services and speak with Teresa Ray or Samantha Moeller about how you can build the capacity in your community to find homes for every child in care.  You can visit Georgia‘s waiting children online by visiting or at .
