Make a Difference for Children with Children's Home Society
Lifetime Families, Life - Long Commitments
Adoptions are as old as civilization itself with one of the oldest recorded adoptions being that of baby Moses. Adoption is a good choice for teens and women experiencing an unplanned pregnancy. We are dedicated in our belief that all children deserve a permanent and secure family. We provide support, counseling and other services to all members of the adoption triad.
The triad members consist of the birth parents, the child and the adoptive parents. Our Adoption program assists in finding homes for children so they can experience healthy development in a permanent secure family. We have experienced staff that is sensitive to the needs of those involved in the Adoption process. It is our belief that a strong foundation is built upon professionalism, individual and personal attention and sensitivity to each individual's needs.
Whether you are considering an adoption plan for your child or you are seeking to be adoptive parents we are here to help you make an informed decision.
To learn more about adoption, we invite you to review the information provided within this web site and contact one of our Adoption Social Workers at 304-345-3894. Our goal is to provide information to all individuals interested in adoption.

The Neighborhood Investment Program (NIP) is a program overseen by the West Virginia Development Office. Each year approved non-profit organizations are allotted state tax credits that can be given to donors who contribute $500 or more for a specific cause. Our projects include; improvements to our 10 emergency child shelter facilities, expansion of our adoption and foster care programs statewide, increasing our early intervention services and programs and to expand our WE CAN mentoring program statewide.
Saving money is easy: when a business or individual contributes $500 or more to the Children's Home Society of West Virginia for the purpose of funding our current projects they become eligible to receive up to 50% of the amount contributed in the form of state tax credits. These credits are in addition to any federal tax deductions.
For example, a $10,000 contribution to the Society would result in $5,000 in State tax savings and a possible Federal tax savings of roughly $2,800 and the cost to you could be as little as $2200.
The NIP program is simple. Send us a contribution of at least $500 and we will send you a tax credit voucher for 50% of your contribution. Attach the voucher to the appropriate tax form and deduct the credit from the amount of taxes owed.
The NIP program provides the donor an excellent way to stretch the value of their charitable contributions while helping to care for children and families all across the state.
Please consider a donation of $500 or more today and see how beneficial the NIP program is while helping to make a difference in the lives of children.
Please contact Mary White at 304-345-3894 or your accountant for more information or simply send a contribution to the Society at PO Box 2942, Charleston, WV 25330 and mark your check or the envelope as a "NIP Contribution."
