Welcome to One Church, One Child of Maryland

Thank you for allowing us into your home, school, business or work place. I hope that you will be encourage to adopt or foster one of God's waiting children as you browse through this website.

One Church, One Child (OCOC) is a program, which encourages the religious community to help recruit adoptive parents for children in out-of-home care. It is a concept that incorporates the leadership of the religious community with the expertise and resources of adoption agency officials into a partnership to secure homes for Maryland's waiting children.

The focus of OCOC is to provide technical assistance and support to local departments in recruiting adoptive families from the religious community and in developing strategies to retain adoptive families awaiting placement of a child. OCOC additionally seeks to recruit adoptive families from corporate and non-profit organizations and to develop corporate partners to serve as sponsors for OCOC adoption activities.

In Maryland One Church, One Child:

  • Provides information to local social services departments, the religious community, and corporate and non-profit organizations about the One Church, One Child Adoption program and data regarding the number and availability of waiting children.

  • Provides information and assistance to places of worship and to community groups, on the process to pursue adoption.

  • Offers support to prospective adoptive families.
