The Georgia Center for Resources and Support was designed in 2001 by the Georgia Department of Human Resources and contracted to Families First and Bethany Christian Services. The purpose of the Center was to provide a centralized resource for adoptive parents to help them locate the help they needed to be successful in meeting the needs of their adopted children.
On July 1, 2004, The Georgia Center for Resources and Support: Serving Adoptive and Foster Families expanded those services to meet the needs of both adoptive and foster families who reside in Georgia.
The administrative office and library of the Center are located at 1105 West Peachtree St. NE in Atlanta. Regional Resource Advisors are located in communities throughout the state and are available to help families clarify their needs, locate resources, and feel supported as they resolve issues brought to their families through adoption and foster care.
The Center cooperates with and coordinates referrals to many resources throughout the state. It is a non-profit, professional service offered free of charge to all adoptive and foster families living in Georgia. In addition, adoptive families who reside in Georgia can utilize these services regardless of the origin of their adoption.
