Mission Statement

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.

Description

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.
