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 the GFA
Adoption touches all aspects of family life. That is why Gladney Family Association (GFA) members include adoptive parents, adoptive grandparents, adult adoptees, siblings, friends (families who completed their adoptions through other agencies), and members of the community who are supporters of adoption. The GFA offers an opportunity for anyone to forge a community with others who have a heart for adoption, support families through their adoption journeys, and advocate for the cause of adoption. Click on the Join GFA link on this page to find and join 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.
