Support Children and Families with EVOLVE

EVOLVE Family Services provides personalized care to children in out-of- home placement. EVOLVE ensures kiddos have a safe and nurturing environment that offers them the stability and support they deserve. We walk alongside caregivers to equip them to welcome a child in their home. Our support is consistent and lifelong. 

Here’s an idea of what your donation can do!

  • $500 can help cover the cost of immediate needs of families receiving emergency placements of children. Needed items include:
    • Diapers and wipes
    • Clothes and Pajamas
    • Highchair
    • Car seats
    • Culturally Specific Hygiene Products
  • $250 can provide children with the opportunity to take part in community activities such as swimming, basketball, camps, and the YMCA.
  • $100 covers a “pack-n-play” for a family and other baby items for a woman experiencing an unplanned pregnancy
  • $50 allows EVOLVE to get a gift for a child for the holidays.

Thank you for helping create a world where everyone has nurturing, permanent, and supportive familial relationships! 


EVOLVE is Committed to Serving as an Antiracist and Anti-Oppressive Organization.

EVOLVE acknowledges that we work within a society and systems of care that are rooted in white supremacy and racism, which frequently result in disparate outcomes for children and families of color. We are committed to dismantling oppression, racism, and other forms of discrimination in all areas of our work to ensure that the children, families and communities we serve receive excellent care and services that enhance and advance their quality of life.

In alignment with the standards of the Child Welfare League of America, EVOLVE cultivates the ability of our staff and our systems of care to respond respectfully and effectively to people of all cultures, races, ethnic backgrounds, abilities, sexual orientations, gender identities, gender expressions, and faiths in a manner that recognizes, affirms, and values the work of the individuals, families, tribes, and communities that protects the dignity of each.

About EVOLVE Family Services

All kids benefit from affection, support, stability, trauma-informed care, and a place to call home. At EVOLVE, we work diligently to unite children with families who will not only provide love, support, and stability but who will also be an advocate for their child's individual needs. 

At EVOLVE we know that there is no single definition for "family." Family is up to how YOU define it - each definition is unique, personal, often complicated, always significant, and we treat it as such. We welcome and are committed to serving all individuals and families regardless of race, religion, age, economic status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or marital status. Our staff is dedicated to helping families through each process, supporting them in their transitions, and preparing them for life as a family.

EVOLVE offers a variety of programs because we know families can be built in multiple ways. Our programs are designed to support all evolving individuals and families by:

  • Adoption: EVOLVE provides a variety of Domestic Infant programs to fit the needs of those families looking to adopt an infant from anywhere in the US.
  • Foster Care: EVOLVE recruits and trains families interested in our Foster Care program. These families serve as foundational support for children in times of life transition.
  • Pregnancy Services: EVOLVE offers free, unbiased support to those experiencing an unplanned pregnancy, in our Pregnancy Services program. Our pregnancy counselors help women and their families know their options and make the decisions that are best for them, free of judgment or pressure.
  • Youth Services: EVOLVE provides critical services to youth involved in the Child Welfare System. Services include helping youth transition into adulthood, matching children to families that can provide a permanent home, and empowering youth to share their voices on a youth leadership council. 

EVOLVE's Vision
