ABCFOC welcomes all interested applicants as prospective resources for children waiting for a family. We acknowledge and respect the dignity and difference of each individual and the potential of each applicant to nurture and provide for a child.


The adoption program at A Better Chance for Our Children (ABCFOC) is unique in many ways. At the heart of our unique approach is that we work almost exclusively to place children who are in foster care and who are considered to have special needs.​

Foster Care

Children in foster care need safe, loving homes in which they can thrive until they return to their birth families or find permanent families through adoption. Yours might just be the home a child is waiting for!​

Post Adoption Support

We provide a full array of post adoption support in Delaware. Our programs are open to ALL adoptive families in Delaware as well as families in Delaware who have guardianship of children who have exited from the State of Delaware foster care system. These programs are FREE to adoptive families.

Therapy Services

We believe that therapeutic services for foster and adopted children are most successful when they are provided by adoption-competent and trauma=informed professionals.
