Evangelical Child and Family Agency (IL)

"Since 1950, Evangelical Child and Family Agency has placed more than 3500 children with loving families. ECFA was started by the National Association of Evangelicals as the first agency in the country to place children exclusively in evangelical Christian homes."

"Religion: Since ECFA is an evangelical Christian agency, adoptive applicants need to have personally accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and be actively involved in a Protestant evangelical church. It is also expected that prospective adoptive individuals or couples agree with the agency’s Christian Lifestyle Guidelines for Adoption/Foster Care Programs. The agency has no other religious requirements, such as membership in a particular denomination. However, applicants who have denominational agencies to serve them are also encouraged to work with those agencies."
