Pregnancy Support & Adoption Services

Supporting women and advocating for their needs

Pregnancy Support and Adoption

Welcoming a child is a very important and life-changing event. Throughout the years, we have walked with hundreds of women as they sought to make the best choices for themselves and their child—through parenting, or by creating an adoption plan.

When Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas opened over 65 years ago, Adoption was one of our flagship programs. We are honored to be a part of helping adoptive families lovingly welcome their children and nurture open-adoption relationships.

We take seriously the joy of supporting women and advocating for their needs whether they choose to parent or opt to adopt. Our Pregnancy Support Services are open to all pregnant women in need of compassionate support.

Pregnancy Support


Our Pregnancy Support Services help expectant mothers through education and case management, providing support both during pregnancy and while beginning the parenting journey.

Expectant Parents


We provide non-judgmental support to expectant parents who are actively considering adoption over parenting. We understand that it’s not an easy journey.

Adoptive Couples


We help married couples considering adoption who have dreamed of having a baby, but are unable to conceive due to infertility or other medical conditions.

Additional Resources
  • For Kansans outside of our service area: We are a member of the Adoption Association of Kansas Catholic Charities. Please visit the Adoption Association website for additional information.
  • Foster Families: Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas’ programs focus on adoption and pregnancy counseling for expectant parents and adoptive couples, but the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas provides resources for foster families. The Foster Care Ministry supports children and the families who care for them, ensuring that every child has an environment where he or she can thrive. Learn more.
  • Reunification: Reunion is often described as an emotional roller coaster for very valid reasons. Many older adoptions were closed, and many open adoptions have varying levels of contact and comfort levels. Learn more about the reunion process on our blog post: Stages of Reunion.
  • Crisis Pregnancy Services: For immediate pregnancy related services please contact our WyCo or Olathe crisis pregnancy centers.
