ICA became licensed in 1990…but began long before that. It grew out of a desire to make a difference in the lives of children and families. ICA became a very unique mission unlike any other “adoption agency”. Believing strongly in doing all programs for the best interest of children, ICA discovered that the “best interest” may be foster care, residential care or to remain in a well-supported and maintained orphanage. We simply cannot find a home for all orphans though we must offer many other support services including humanitarian aid, peace trips (working mission trips in U.S. and abroad), counseling services and networking with other organizations so help can be maximized. ICA became Hague accredited in 2008.
