Parenting Education and Coaching:
Building stronger families is a goal of NorServ. One way to do this is to help parents feel more capable and supported with the challenges they face. NorServ offers parenting education and parent coaching in individual and family formats.

Pre- and Post- Adoption Services:
NorServ recognizes that there are three key parties in any adoptive circumstance. For the birthparent(s), NorServ can assist with the emotional issues related to making an adoption plan for the child. We also recognize these types of plans may have been made many years ago, and there may be some unresolved loss. We can assist with these issues.

For those wanting to become an adoptive parent, NorServ supports recruiting individuals and couples for the child placement agencies in St. Clair County. For information regarding becoming an adoptive parent, call (810) 966-2000 at St. Clair County Dept. of Health and Human Services. For current adoptive parents, individual, family and group counseling services are available. These services are available for both pre-adoptive and post-adoptive parents and families.

For the adoptee (child/adolescent), NorServ offers individual, family and group counseling services and have staff trained specifically in this area. For counseling services, call (810) 329-4798. All calls are confidential. Special funding may be available for domestic adoptions from the child welfare system.

Foster Care Recruitment: St. Clair County has a particular need at this time for licensed homes that are willing to take sibling groups (a group of children belonging to the same family), teen (boys or girls), children with mental and/or emotional handicaps, as well as of a minority race or culture. Foster Care can be a very rewarding - but challenging - way to help children. If you have room in your heart and a room in your home, consider adding the smile of a child. For information on becoming a foster parent in St. Clair County, please call the St. Clair County Dept. of Health and Human Services at (810) 966-2000.
