Children Available for Adoption

Please take a moment to view the profiles of the children currently needing an adoptive home. In each profile, the child's LCCS team is identified. Please contact that team directly if you would like more information about a child.

If you have any additional questions, or general questions, please call the LCCS at 440.329.5340 and ask for the FBC department.

Reimbursements and Subsidy information

Foster parents are reimbursed for the care they provide to the community's children. Currently, LCCS foster families receive $35.00 per day to care for children ages 0-13 and $40.00 per day for children ages 14-18.

Post Adoption Special Services Subsidy (PASSS)

This program is designed to assist adoptive families who have adopted children with special needs through public child welfare agencies. Occasionally, children who have been adopted require special assistance or develop special needs.

Many times these special needs are related to pre-existing conditions or may have developed after the adoption was finalized but are related to the child's having been adopted. These "special needs" are often attributed to factors in the child's pre-adoptive background or medical history of the birth family. If you are an adoptive parent and wish to apply for PASSS funding, please contact Julie Kish
