Holt pioneered the modern practice of international adoption in 1956 and continues to be the leading agency in the United States. Thousands of children have joined loving, permanent families through our adoption programs. Today, our primary focus is to help children remain in the loving care of their birth families whenever possible. Holt’s family strengthening programs provide support and resources to families who might otherwise separate under the strains of poverty. By providing everything from food assistance to counseling to small business microloans, you can help a family grow stable, self-reliant and equipped to independently provide for their children.
Holt International is a Christian organization that provides care and support to many of the world’s most vulnerable children — those who are orphaned, abandoned or at serious risk of separation from their family.
We work in local communities around the world, and strive to keep children in their families of birth by providing the care and support they need to grow and thrive as a family. For children who do not remain with their birth families, we help find loving families through adoption, foster and kinship care. At Holt, we always prioritize the child’s needs above all else.

Requirements to become a foster parent

Foster parents receive a reimbursement or payment to help with care costs. According to the Oregon Department of Human Services, the Oregon foster care rates are as follows:

  • Base rate payment of $693 per month (age 0-5 years)
  • Base rate payment of $733 per month (age 6-12)
  • Base rate payment of $795 per month (age 13 - 20)

These payments are meant to help cover the costs of food, clothing, housing, transportation, personal care items, etc. Parents may also receive a shelter care payment.

The DHS or private foster care agencies provide flexible training opportunities, on-call support, access to a network of professionals, support groups, and respite care.

Respite care gives full-time foster parents a break when needed or allows them to address emergency situations.

With Love Oregon is a non-profit that supports foster families by providing clothing and supplies to young children. Parents can get clothing, diapers, car seats, and more.

211info is a non-profit that provides parenting education, parent-to-parent networking, helplines and support groups, and much more. Resource families can find many types of support on their website.

A local court in Seoul has ordered Holt Children's Services 16.5.2023 to pay compensation to a South Korean adoptee who was illegally sent overseas despite having biological parents in the country.

The Seoul Central District Court on Tuesday sided with the plaintiff, 48-year-old XXXX XXXXXXX, born XXXX XXXX-XXXX, ordering the agency to pay 100 million won, or 75-thousand U.S. dollars, plus delayed interest.

The court did not, however, acknowledge the government's liability for compensation, dismissing that portion of the lawsuit.

XXXXX was sent to the U.S. at the age of three in 1979 but was driven to homelessness by 16 due to abuse by the adoptive parents who later relinquished custody of him. Due to their failure to properly register the adoption, Crapser never received U.S. citizenship.

He was ultimately deported back to South Korea in 2016 after his misdemeanor records came to light during the permanent residency renewal process in the U.S.

Holt gives me the creeps who in the name of Christ are trafficking babies and toddlers all over the Western world.

They make me want to quote Oberst Kurtz in the voiceover at the end of 'Apocalypse Now': The horror...the horror...

I concur with Jenny R, I found my interface with Holt to be very unprofessional. Very unprofessional.
