Adoption in West Virginia

The Children’s Home Society of West Virginia is a private, nonprofit multi-service agency established in 1896 with the mission of “finding homes for homeless and dependent children.”

What began as a dream of a group of Charleston ministers, the YMCA President and the Reverend D.W. Comstock, a retired minister and former Superintendent of the Children’s Home Society of Arkansas, evolved into an active children’s service agency providing adoption, shelter care and counseling. More detailed information about the Society, its founding and history can be found <here.>

21st Century Activity

Through a generous gift, the Adoption Resource Center expanded from its Charleston base to include centers in Martinsburg, Morgantown and Princeton . The centers offer services to those interested in adoption and related services.
