Adoption Services

Adoptive Services are provided for youth who are referred by the Children and Youth Services Agency, for potential adoptive families who are self-referred or referred by county agencies,
and for families who have adopted and desire post-adoption support.

Happy multicultural family having a nice summer day

About Us

Children’s Home is under contract with the Statewide Adoption and Permanency Network (SWAN) to provide adoption services for children and families in the Pennsylvania public child welfare system. This enables us to work together with other agencies to find adoptive homes for waiting children. We have offices in South Central and Southeastern Pennsylvania, and have a collaborative
agreement with Children’s Home of Reading. This allows us to fulfill the demand for our services across much of Pennsylvania.

Referrals

We work with county children and youth agencies to not only provide services to ensure the process is handled quickly and professionally, but also prepare the child and perspective family emotionally throughout the entire process. Please contact us and we will begin the process of expediting permanency services. Children’s Home also assists families who are interested in adopting a
child from the foster care system.
