WCPO Story about Foster Care

Please check out this great story from WCPO - 9 On Your Side that highlights one of our amazing adoptive families.

The opioid crisis has hit our region especially hard, and there are thousands of children in need of a forever home. November is National Adoption Month, and we here at DCCH are available to answer all your questions about fostering and adopting.

Donald and his Forever Family

Huge congratulations to Donald and his forever family! His adoption date came shortly before his senior year of high school and turning 18! Donald has truly embraced the opportunities his new family has offered him. He is described as a great role model for his younger four brothers who all were previously individually adopted by his mom and dad. DCCH could not be more proud of the success of this young man and his wonderful family.

In the picture celebrating this great occasion with Donald are his family, youth pastor, current and prior state workers, recruiter and the DCCH Team.

Letter to Parents

A child in one of our homes wrote a beautiful letter that she gave to her foster parents as a Christmas gift. This letter is a perfect example of what being a foster family is about, which is providing a safe haven of love and protection for a child.

Our mission is to welcome more families into our Therapeutic Foster Care & Adoption Program in order to have more outcomes like this. Change a life. That's what happened to this child. Her life was changed through her experience.

Blessed to be a part!

We love hearing feedback like this:

"My case worker, Nikki Hutchenson, Director of Foster Care Ron Bertsch, and the children’s therapist, Emily Burch took care of me and my foster children with the most respect and professionalism anyone could ask for. The agency developed a great plan to help transition the children into their new home. The time and concern for these kids was so magnificent. How anyone can foster children without having this private agency for support, I don’t have a clue. This emotional experience was just handled with so much love and support for these kids. We are blessed to be a part of DCCH!"

DCCH strives every day to provide quality, compassionate care to children and families who have been impacted by trauma and bring them together for a bright, healthy, and happy future.
