What We Do

Adoption

CFCS provides a range of services through its adoption program. We provide adoption planning and case management services for children and teens in the custody of the Department of Children and Families. We typically work with those children who face the greatest challenges to adoption: older children and teens, sibling groups, and children with medical, developmental, emotional and/or behavioral special needs. We offer services to families who hope to adopt these children, providing training and home studies, guiding families through the matching and placement process, and offering post-placement family support. Finally, we provide consultation services to the Department of Children and Families.
