Children’s Home Society of Minnesota & Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota Support Groups

Open to all adoptive families regardless of placing agency.  Email Nichole Lange for more information at Nichole.lange@chlss.org

Lutheran Social Service and Children’s Home Society offer Spring and Fall Adoptee Support Groups. In our adoptee support groups, we engage in age-appropriate discussions about diversity and culture, school issues, adoption and birth families. Each group is open to adopted children and their families, regardless of placing agency. The groups are broken into two session times by age, and then within each session children are divided into smaller groups based on their age. While the children meet, a corresponding parent session takes place for parents to listen and learn from each other.
For detailed information on ages, fees and dates please go to https://chlss.org/event/adoptee-support-groups/ or call 651.255.2245.
