Adoption can be one of the trickiest things to navigate within the
Department of Social Services. Thankfully, with the help of the Rainbow
Resource Directories, finding an adoption agency or service that meets all
your needs is easy.
The Adoption/Foster Care chapter contains numerous listings including:
Domestic and international adoption agencies
that recruit and train foster parents and assist with the
overall adoption process.
Peer counseling hotlines and support services
for adoptive parents.
Counseling and support for birth mothers
placing their babies up for adoption.
Services for current and former foster youth
and wards of the court such as drop-in centers, youth advisory
councils, and support groups.
Residential treatment centers and programs
specifically for abused, neglected, and emotionally disturbed
Local Community Care Licensing offices that
certify and license group homes.
Many resources in this chapter are also culturally
sensitive, faith-based, or offer services targeted towards a
specific client population.
