Jambalaya and Jazz Business & Individual Sponsorships
As a business leader, you impact our economy and quality of life on a daily basis. Now, you have the opportunity to join us in changing the lives of children and families in our region. Adoption Option Inc., Child Welfare Organization (AOICWO) provides much more than adoption services. We impact this community by providing services in the areas of Adoption, Foster Care, Licensing, Family Preservation and mentoring.
Our programs for abused/neglected children and their families offer evidence-based parenting classes, with the goal of reuniting families with their children when possible. We also offer adoption (and other services) when it is not possible for the children to return home.In 2016, we provided more than 8,500 hours of family preservation, increasing our service hours by 18% from last year to this year. We also increased the number of families that we reached to nearly 400 hundred families which is 10% higher than last year, thereby helping many more foster care children all over the State of Michigan.
