Private Adoption Services
In addition to offering adoption services through The Pennsylvania Statewide Adoption and Permanency Network (SWAN), The Salvation Army Children's Services offers private adoption services to families interested in pursuing private domestic adoption. Our agency will work closely with you to provide caring professional services to meet the requirements of the adoption placement agency and to make this a positive experience for everyone involved. The adoption services provided by our agency include:

Adoption Home Study Updates includes visit(s) to your home to compile information and conduct a family assessment and a report for the purpose of updating an existing adoption home study.
Post Adoption Placement Reports are conducted to evaluate the adjustment of the child to your home and to prepare a written report.
Adoption Post Placement Supervision is to assess the adjustment of the child to your home and to provide support and referral services.
