Adoption with Wendy’s Wonderful Kids:
Finding Forever Families
ChildServ is proud to be Chicagoland’s local adoption partner of Wendy’s Wonderful Kids, a signature program of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. Utilizing the fundraising efforts of Wendy’s and its customers, results-driven grant oversight of the Foundation and the talent of our seasoned adoption recruiters, this program facilitates permanent adoptive matches for children waiting in foster care.
- Our professionally trained recruiter creates a comprehensive recruitment plan for each child and conducts a thorough search for potential adoptive families, matching child and family when appropriate.
- ChildServ staff develops a strong relationship with each child through monthly meetings to encourage trust and openness.
- Our recruiter prepares each child for adoption and assures that the adoptive family is able to meet the needs of the child. This involves ongoing education for both the child and his or her adoptive parents.
- We develop a network of adults in each child’s life, including the caseworker, foster parent, attorney, court-appointed special advocate/guardian to ensure that appropriate support and resources are available to prepare each child for adoption.
The Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) requires nonprofit organizations and agencies that perform adoption services through foster care to post the State of Illinois DCFS Annual Report for Illinois Licensed Adoption Agencies.
