CVC ADOPTION FUND

PURPOSE

We believe adoption is growing God’s Kingdom one child at a time. For those who feel called to adopt, our CVC Adoption Grant Fund exists to help counter the high costs of adoption. We are honored that you would allow us to become part of your adoption journey. There are a variety of steps to complete to apply for an Adoption Grant through CVC. Please see below for all the guidelines and requirements to be considered. “God sets the lonely in families…”–Psalm 68:6 (NIV)
