Adoption

Catholic Social Services is a licensed adoption agency and operates an infant adoption program available to infertile adults who do not have any children.

CSS also has a Foster Care Program utilized by surrounding area Children and Youth Agencies.

CSS also facilitates Special Needs Adoptions; we are part of the State Wide Adoption Network (SWAN) in addition to utilizing various regional and national networks to place special needs children in appropriate adoptive homes.  “Special needs” refers to physically, emotionally, or socially challenged children who are involved in the social service system.

Additionally, we make referrals to international adoption agencies and provide home studies and post placement supervision for international adoptions.  We provide home studies and post placement visits for private adoptions and interstate adoptions as well.  Training is required for all families serving children in any capacity.
