Catholic Charities

After the State of Illinois closed down their adoption services, Catholic Charities is moving on, according to this article. A snip:

"The agency intends to strengthen its Catholic identity and become more self-reliant in funding its services."


"The Illinois Department of Children and Family Services ended the contracts because the Catholic agencies would not place children in homes of unmarried couples, including homosexual couples and those in civil unions.

The contracts provided the Springfield agency with about half of its revenue, or $5 million per year, the Illinois State Journal-Register reports.

Catholic Charities agencies have served thousands of children and families in Illinois since 1921. Collectively, they handled about 20 percent of the adoption and foster care cases in Illinois."

The government is not such a good partner, hein?
