Children’s House International is a non-profit international adoption agency, founded in 1975, by Ric Oddone and Robert Yeates in the State of Utah. Both Oddone and Yeates worked in the juvenile justice system and wanted to make a difference in the lives of children who needed it most. They originally incorporated Children’s House International as a charitable institution, to help abandoned children in India.

In 1994, both men were appointed as judges in the State of Utah. At that time Debbie S. Price was volunteering at the agency and stepped up to become the Executive Director of Children’s House International.

Ms. Price has expanded the agency’s programs to include: Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, China, Colombia, Ethiopia, Honduras, Hungary, India, Poland, Rep. of Georgia, Rep. of Moldova, Romania, and Ukraine.

In addition to Utah, Children’s House International is licensed in the States of Florida, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Texas, and Washington and has placed over 1,000 children.
