We Believe in Families

CHS meets the complex needs of North Carolina's children and families by providing a broad spectrum of programs and services. While we have been known for our adoption services, CHS also provides post adoption services, foster care, parenting education, family preservation, teen pregnancy prevention and family finding services. Last year CHS served more than 20,000 children and families who needed assistance in North Carolina.
