The Gladney Center is the most comprehensive adoption agency in the country. For over 135 years, The Gladney Center for Adoption has been assisting women who are facing the most difficult decision of their lives…the decision to place their child for adoption. Gladney’s top priority is always the health and well-being of the expectant mother and Gladney provides all services free of charge to any woman who is considering making an adoption plan for her child.  Our adoption counselors, legal services, and post-adoption department are all exceptional in their dedication to our clients. Gladney is also proud to offer international adoption programs, and adoptions from the Department of Family and Child Services.  Gladney’s newest program is the Gladney Home which provides a safe and caring environment for teenage girls in foster care.  Gladney believes every child deserves a loving and caring family and we work hard to make that happen.   


Thank you for your interest and support of The Gladney Center!  We look forward to working with you in the future
