About this resource

About the Website

Utah’s Adoption Connection works with Utah’s Division of Child & Family Services (DCFS) to host this website and is managed in partnership with Raise the Future, a non-profit child welfare agency serving eight states in the west, including Utah.

The children featured are all children who are in the custody of the state of Utah and are currently in foster care waiting for adoption. The best way to get more information about a particular child is to make an inquiry through this website. To be considered for a child, a family must have a current home study. Some of the post-adoption services listed are only available to families who have adopted through the Division of Child and Family Services, but the majority of the services are open to any family.
