Your generosity helps us provide children with the care, support, and family that they need to thrive. Whether that is through the one-on-one care and attention toddlers in South Africa receive from their Grannies, the free events that offer a supportive community for children and families, or connecting children, including those with special medical needs, to their forever families, our programs are there for children and families every day, with your support. Thank you.

Every Child...

...Deserves Support

Through counseling, coaching, and fun and engaging programs for children of all ages, Spence-Chapin provides support to children and families connected to adoption.  Your contribution helps us grow our programming and reach more children and families in need of our services.

...Deserves Care

The Spence-Chapin Granny Program provides children living in orphanages the one-on-one care and attention of a caregiver that they need to thrive, and that they would not otherwise receive. Your generosity will help us continue to expand this program and help even more children.

...Deserves Family

At Spence-Chapin we believe that every child deserves a family.  It is our mission to connect children in need of permanency to loving, forever families, including children with special medical or developmental challenges.  Your support helps us connect children to their forever families.

Building Families Together

Your generosity helps us continue to build and support all families!
