Foster Care & Adoption

Foster Care & Adoption Service

The Up Center specializes in placing children and adolescents with varying needs in caring foster homes. Our staff strives to find the best matches possible between child and foster parent. We provide extensive support services for foster parents and foster children, from birth to age 21.


We are always looking for adults—single, married, or divorced—willing to volunteer as foster parents. Over 1,000 Hampton Roads children are in foster care.


Through our Foster-to-Adopt program, we help interested foster parents adopt their foster children.
