THE WORK OF THE BABY FOLD often begins when other help ends. What began as a faith-based orphanage for infants and young children has grown into a multi-service agency specializing in the care of today's most vulnerable children.
Over the decades, The Baby Fold has responded to the challenges in our society that threaten the well-being of children and families. From the East Coast orphan trains that brought abandoned children to the Midwest to today's challenges with autism and other severe emotional and behavioral disorders, The Baby Fold has been a source of transformational love for children. We focus on improving the lives of children and families by building safe, loving, healthy environments through adoption services, foster care, residential care, special education and family and community services.
