Galbraith Family

DCCH facilitated their 150th adoption on November 23, 2020! DCCH is thrilled to celebrate this momentous occasion with the Galbraith family.

After fostering Jackson for 30 months, he is now officially a Galbraith! This is the family’s second adoption of 2020; they adopted Jackson’s best friend earlier this Spring.

The boys’ journey is so unique, LOCAL 12 covered the story. Watch the video here!

Congratulations to the Galbraith family!

Julia and Dakota Geiman

Pendleton County couple Julia and Dakota Geiman are foster parents with DCCH. They are currently fostering two siblings, ages 15 years old and 11 years old. Julia has a unique history with DCCH as she was a former foster youth who was adopted through the DCCH Foster Care and Adoption Program over 15 years ago.

Iyana and her donated car

Nineteen year old Matt Mosley is donating his car to a youth in foster care.

After seeing the story of the youth that donated his vehicle, a Fidelity Investments employee and her family responded with an offer to donate their Kia Spectra.

Thanks to their kind and generous donation, Iyana, a youth in our Independent Living program is gaining independence with her new transportation. DCCH is thrilled that the two young adults who needed cars have received them!

Thanks to this community always supporting the kids in DCCH's programs, we continue to change lives!

The Taylor Family

Boone County couple Maggie and Ian Taylor, adopted their daughter from DCCH’s Foster Care and Adoption Program in 2015. The Taylors were interested in adopting from foster care to help a child find a family and experience unconditional love.
