A service of Bethany Christian Services in partnership with the Michigan Department of Human Services.

About Us

We are here to be a resource for families with children ages 21 years or younger who have been adopted from Michigan’s foster care system, adopted in Michigan through an international adoption, adopted in Michigan through domestic infant adoption, or placed in guardianship through Michigan’s foster care system and are eligible for guardianship assistance through MDHHS adoption subsidy office. Bethany’s PARCs are available to serve families who live in Regions 2, 3, and 4 (see below). The PARCs are a partnership of Bethany Christian Services and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

PARC’s services are designed to support families whose adoptions are finalized. Some of these services include family activities, monthly groups and events, information about resources in the community, and helping families to access and coordinate community services. We also offer adoption sensitive in-home case management to support families who are dealing with challenges that sometimes arise in adoption.

Please explore our website. You will find adoption relevant articles and resources, a calendar of family friendly community events, as well as the upcoming PARC events in your region. Be sure to check out our quarterly newsletter designed especially for adoptive families.
