One Church; One Child

What is One Church, One Child?

One Church, One Child is a special adoption recruitment program designed to reach out to the minority community. Working primarily through the minority churches, it identifies adoptive families and single parents for children in need of permanent homes. One Church, One Child was begun in Chicago, Illinois in 1980, by Father George Clements, former pastor of Holy Angels Catholic Church.

The basic principle of One Church, One Child is to recruit at least one minority family or single parent per church to adopt at least one child.

Historically, the minority community has taken the responsibility for its own children whenever necessary. However, today many children do not have traditional family support and they become caught up in the foster care system.
