Mission

Downey Side's philosophy is rooted in the conviction that every child deserves the right to a permanent and loving family. It is our purpose to work in partnership with the government as a licensed adoption agency to place America's waiting children who otherwise would remain homeless. We are dedicated to family life for all children and strongly believe that a healthy permanent relationship is the best prevention against homelessness. Downey Side also has the additional purpose of leading members of each community to become advocates and spokesmen for children in need.

Downey Side

Downey Side finds adoptive families for foster children in the continental United States. The average age of the children we 'place' is over 11. We have been doing this consistently for over 50 years. We do not call our children 'hard-to-place' or even 'older' because they are simply children to love.
Downey Side works with families throughout the adoption process. We train our families to understand the needs of the children they adopt, while simultaneously completing their family's home study. We then help our families search throughout the United States for their child/ren. Upon finding their adoptive child, Downey Side staff help with the placement transition and supervise the adoptive placement to finalization. Due to the close relationship we establish with our families, they stay connected with us for a lifetime. Downey Side staff is available to provide community referrals and other resources to families many years after the adoption.
