With over 2,000 foster children in Pennsylvania waiting for a forever family, the need for loving families who are willing to open their hearts and homes is great. Consider becoming an adoptive parent and provide a child with a chance at a bright future. There is an urgent need for families. Any family who can provide a loving, safe environment for a child is welcome to apply. We offer our services without discrimination and with the best interest of the children we serve at the forefront of all we do.
The Salvation Army Children’s Services provides services for the following types of adoption:
Foster Care Adoption: Adoption of a child that you are fostering if the child becomes legally free for adoption
SWAN Adoption: Adoption through the Statewide Adoption and Permanency Network (SWAN) of a child in Pennsylvania who is legally free for adoption and already waiting for a permanent family. Children eligible for SWAN adoption are primarily older children.
Home Study for Private Adoption: Our agency can provide a private adoption home study when a family is working with a private adoption agency/attorney for infant adoption, relative/kinship adoption, custody, etc.
