At DePaul, we believe the most important work we can do is open doors to hope and belonging. The services we provide in the New RIver Valley to children, families, and individuals with disability demonstrate our commitment to building communities that can safely support our most vulnerable citizens.
Our services – including foster care, adoption, and services for individuals with developmental disabilities – help to provide safe homes, permanent families, integrated community support, and opportunities for deep healing. It is our mission to ensure safety, promote permanency, and improve the quality of life for the nearly 600 individuals we serve every day.
In the Commonwealth of Virginia, there are approximately 882 children in foster care that are available for adoption and have yet to find a forever family.
Through our child and family services programs, DePaul Community Resources is working to change these numbers without ever forgetting what they represent: children and young adults with their own needs, obstacles, strengths, and dreams.
Our foster care
program matches children and teens with trained, therapeutic caregivers ready to promote healing and growth. Every placement receives extensive support from DePaul staff, with programs in place for therapeutic mentorship, family reunification and preservation, and the transition to independent living.
through DePaul Community Resources offer support throughout the process, from answering a potential parent's first questions to post-adoptive services including peer support groups, case management, and crisis intervention. We also offer community-based services
We firmly believe that every child deserves to experience the sense of belonging that can only come from a loving home and a forever family, but we can't accomplish this alone.
