Friendship House’s Adoption Program recruits families to provide permanent adoptive homes to foster children who are unable to be reunified with their birth family. As a SWAN affiliate, Friendship House offers all components of the adoption process including family and child profiles, matching, child-specific recruitment, child preparation and post-adoption services through a contract with the Statewide Adoption and Permanency Network (SWAN). Friendship House’s adoption program seeks to ensure permanency for children in foster care, and works closely with our foster care program to ensure that children who are unable to return home experience minimal disruption. The adoption program also completes independent family profiles and birth family search and reunion services for those whose adoption was finalized through Friendship House.
