Perhaps one of FamilyCore’s most rewarding opportunities is to strengthen families by matching children with their new forever home. FamilyCore facilitates private, international and embryo adoptions for all ages and ethnic backgrounds. Our professional, compassionate staff guides prospective parents and also provides service at certain milestones along the adoption process.

No one’s perfect, including parents. Foster care is often required because parents are unwilling or unable to provide adequate care during times of stress or crisis. When children need temporary living arrangements, FamilyCore connects them with safe and caring home environments. The organization can guide anyone who meets basic requirements (set by the state of Illinois) through the process. Foster parents provide love and understanding to children until conflicts are resolved and they can be reunited with their families.
Much like trying to clap with only one hand, being a single parent is not easy! FamilyCore lends a hand by helping single parents learn to communicate effectively, discipline appropriately, apply good child development techniques and use self-care practices. These services are provided free of charge to single parents in the tri-county area who have a child under 18 living with them.


The prospect of succeeding and staying in school can be challenging for some families. FamilyCore has built a wide-reaching spectrum of programs for at-risk youth in the tri-county area to provide channels for success. Services include Respite Programs for children suspended from school; After School and Summer Programs that focus on educational and recreational activities; Family School Liaisons who work to prevent suspensions and attendance problems; and a Youth Anger Management program.
