Welcome to Frank Adoption Center

Originally founded in 1994, Frank Adoption Center worked for a number of years to place children from Eastern Europe in US homes. With the implementation of the Hague Treaty, along with a number of other policy changes, these adoptions ceased in 2012.

In 2013, Frank Adoption Center re-opened as an entirely new agency, employing a new staff and utilizing a new Board of Directors, this time focused on adoption from Nepal. While the agency remains committed to seeing a Nepal adoption program once again become viable, the focus of Frank Adoption Center has shifted and now operates programs in a number of countries, as well as serving as a Primary Provider for families who wish to adopt from varying countries around the world.

Our focus has always been on finding families for children, prioritizing their needs above all else.

In 2022, Frank Adoption Center is launching a new program to license foster families in the Wake County area to provide safe and supportive care to children and youth while in the foster system. Our licensing program has a special focus on meeting the needs of LGBTQ+ foster youth by licensing knowledgable and affirming families who will celebrate the identity and honor the story of the children and youth in their homes.

We look forward to speaking with you about your own adoption or fostering hopes and how we may help you to support the children who come into your care.
