Financial Assistance

We’re so thankful that you are considering the call to adopt! No doubt the road ahead will include many great moments to enjoy, as well as significant obstacles to overcome. Here at Westside we want to do all that we can to support you on this journey. Adoption is a beautiful picture of the Gospel, but all too often people give up when they get a sense of the financial cost. Because of this we have put together a fund to offer grants to “Westsiders” in the midst of adopting. If you would like to be considered for an adoption grant please click on the link below to begin an application.
