Community Partnerships

The Cradle has relationships with more than 200 hospitals across Illinois and Indiana, providing adoption-related support and training (with CEs) to health care professionals. The Cradle also partners with local community and youth centers, adoption professionals, social service organizations, sororities, fraternities and schools to raise awareness of adoption-related services.
