There are many ways to get involved with the cause of adoption and with Gladney, and it takes every one of us to make a difference in the life of a child.

Join in With the GFA

Adoption touches all aspects of family life. That is why the Gladney Family Association (GFA) is made up of Gladney Families; adoptive parents, adoptive grandparents, adult adoptees, siblings. The GFA offers an opportunity for Gladney families to provide support throughout their adoption journies, be a conduit for education and equipping for the adoption journey, be a social connectioon for families who share the story of adoption, and a way to join with other families in sharing their stories to advocate for Gladney, adoption, and adoption causes. Click on the Nearest GFA link on this page to find and join in with your local GFA, or e-mail us at for more information.

From visiting babies in the hospital to helping around our facilities and from fostering infants in transitional care to assisting with special events, Gladney has volunteer opportunities for individuals and groups. We also have internship opportunities for college and graduate school students. Visit Gladney's website for more information and to apply.

Gladney’s mission is based on our belief that every child deserves a loving and caring family, but we can’t carry it out alone. From caring for expectant mothers and waiting children to training and educating parents, we need you to join in on our mission. Learn more about our programs and how to give.
