Mission Statement

Downey Side's philosophy is rooted in the conviction that every chid 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

Downey Side aims to prevent homelessness through relationships. After preparing families who want to adopt older children, we connect them with children waiting in foster care. Downey Side supports families throughout the entire adoption process, starting with adoption training.
