CHS is a full-service, private, nonprofit 501(c)(3), non-sectarian child-placing agency, and one of Virginia’s oldest adoption agencies. Since its charter by the Virginia General Assembly in 1900, CHS has been guided by the fundamental belief that every child deserves a home.

To date, CHS has successfully facilitated placement of more than 12,500 children into safe and permanent homes. That’s enough to fill more than 150 school buses!
