Diakon Adoption & Foster Care

Diakon Adoption & Foster Care has one goal: to bring permanence to the lives of waiting children and youths. Through foster care, foster-to-adopt (legal-risk placements), and special needs and domestic adoption, we focus on uniting children and youths with their forever families.

As Mechanicsburg, Topton, York, and Holland’s premier adoption agency and foster care program, Diakon is committed to creating perfect unions, both for child and parent. Adopting a child or providing foster care is a huge step, and Diakon is here to help you every step of the way.

Caring for children and youths for nearly 150 years

Our heritage of service to children and youths dates to 1868 – a testament to our ability to meet ever-changing needs. In that transition, we became a national adoption agency model for children with special needs. Today, we implement leading-edge ideas to serve a wide range of children in foster care, children available for adoption, and older youths facing limited options—as well as the families who make their worlds whole.
