About Us

Vision: EVOLVE Family Services envisions a world where everyone has nurturing, permanent, and supportive familial relationships.

Mission: To achieve our Vision by providing a full breadth of inclusive, ethical programming: adoption, foster carepregnancy support, youth services, and therapeutic support and education.

EVOLVE Is Defined By Its Core Values:

At EVOLVE Family Services, we can provide the personalized support that you would expect from a small, private agency while offering the expertise and program variety of a larger organization. You can expect support through every step of the way, from every perspective of an evolving family.

Our staff embrace and are passionate about working with individuals of any age, ethnicity, culture, or family structure. We have a global perspective that extends beyond the “typical” agency experience, breaking down any barriers towards family formation.

EVOLVE is located anywhere from the heart of the Twin Cities to the middle of the St. Croix Valley but work statewide, as well as in western Wisconsin, to unite children with loving families.

Child-Centered: Children are at the center of everything we do. We believe all children benefit from a supportive, stable, and nurturing family and community.

Anti-Oppressive: We are committed to dismantling oppression, racism, and other forms of discrimination in all areas of our work with children, families, and communities.

Collaborative: We believe children are better served when we partner across program areas, social and governmental agencies, and within our diverse communities.

Transparent: We believe integrity, honesty, and accountability are essential in building trusting relationships.

Evolving: As advocates for systemic change, we are continuously developing and improving upon the ways in which we support our children and families.


Programs:

Children all over the world are growing up without permanent families. These children are in desperate need of affection, stability, and a place to call home. At EVOLVE, we work diligently to unite these children with families who will love, support, and value them as individuals.

The idea of “family” is evolving every day. We understand that each situation is unique, personal, and significant, and we treat it as such. We welcome and are committed to serving all individuals and families, regardless of race, religion, age, economic status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or marital status. Our staff is dedicated to helping families throughout the entire adoption process, supporting them in their transitions, and preparing them for life as a family.

EVOLVE offers a variety of programs because we know families can be built in multiple ways. Our programs are designed to support all evolving individuals and families by:

Providing a variety of Domestic Infant programs to fit the needs of those families looking to adopt an infant from anywhere in the US.

Guiding and supporting families in our International Adoption programs as they grow their family through the adoption of children in need of families all over the world.

Recruiting and training families interested in our Foster Care program. These families serve as foundational support for children in times of life transition.

Offering free, unbiased support to those experiencing an unplanned pregnancy, in our Pregnancy Services program. Our pregnancy counselors help women and their families know their options and make the decisions that are best for them, free of judgment or pressure.

Providing free Therapeutic Services to past or current EVOLVE clients to better care for our families. EVOLVE also assists counties with providing services to families and youth involved with child protection. 

Vision: EVOLVE Family Services envisions a world where everyone has nurturing, permanent, and supportive familial relationships.
