Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Downey Side is a domestic 'special needs’ adoption agency placing children from the foster care system of the United States of America. We recruit families, provide them with preparation and homestudy/ certification, provide searching assistance, placement supervision and support, and then post-finalization support. Our focus is on children older than 7, children of minority groups, medically fragile children, sibling groups, and children with psycho-social challenges.
Downey Side’s philosophy is rooted in the conviction that every child has the right to a permanent family. It is our purpose to work in partnership with the government as a licensed adoption agency to place America’s waiting children who otherwise would remain homeless. We are dedicated to family life for all children and strongly believe that a healthy permanent relationship is the best prevention against homelessness.
Downey Side has the additional purpose of leading members of each community to become advocates for children in need.
We are a mission for homeless children, placing adolescent and pre-adolescent foster children into permanent adoptive homes. These children would otherwise 'age out' of the system and face an extremely difficult future.
