Founded in Evanston, Illinois in 1923, The Cradle is an accredited, not-for-profit, nonsectarian adoption and child welfare agency, licensed to complete adoptions throughout the state of Illinois. The Cradle’s mission is to benefit children and all others touched by adoption—by compassionately delivering exceptional education, guidance and lifelong support to build, sustain and preserve nurturing families. The Cradle provides ethical, high quality programs and services for expectant parents, adoptive parents and adopted persons, as well as skilled, 24-hour onsite nursery care for infants whose birth parents are considering an adoption plan. More than 15,000 children have become cherished members of Cradle families in the organization’s 90-year history. The Cradle Foundation, a distinct yet interdependent 501(c)(3) organization, was created in 2003 to raise and manage funds in support of The Cradle's exemplary programs and services.
