Foster Care and Adoption in Geauga County

Geauga County Job and Family Services (GCJFS) needs nurturing homes in which to place children ages birth to eighteen years who come into custody every year in our County. We are particularly in need of families for school-aged children and teens. Reunification with the biological parents is always the first goal for children in the temporary custody of GCJFS. Foster Care, Permanency Planning programs and Adoption are offered through GCJFS to families interested in making a difference in a child’s life. All of our programs are open to families or singles within a thirty-mile radius of our agency. All families are encouraged to attend an information meeting. Families interested in Foster Care, Permanency Planning or Adoption are required to attend classes, called Pre-Service Training.

Our Mission
