Loving homes and forever families

Our adoption programs help those hoping to adopt infants through open adoption or for those who have room in their heard to adopt an older child, with a child with special needs, or a sibling group.

Adoption is one of our organization’s most important service and JFCS is proud to have facilitated thousands of adoptions during our rich history. With a commitment to bringing families together, we place both infants and children into safe, loving and permanent homes.

SWAN  Adoption

SWAN (Statewide Adoption and Permanency Network) provides permanent placement for children who are currently in the foster care system. Often the children that we place are ages 10-16, sibling groups, and/or a child with medical/emotional needs. Our Child Welfare Department is under contract with the SWAN program to provide profiles for children and families, as well as services that prepare children for transition to permanent homes, and those that help families finalize adoptions. Our agency provides post permanency support services to include assessment of needs support, case advocacy, and respite care.

We are in challenging and unprecedented times. As we all navigate this new way of living and working together, one thing that remains constant is that JFCs is here for our clients and we are here for each other.


We are watching closely what our City, State and Federal government is saying and doing and translating that into what that means for us as an organization.


We are exploring ways to reach members of our community using the core competencies that we all have to alleviate stress and anxiety. We are communicating with many similar agencies across the country to learn more and better understand policies put forth from our Governor and the Federal government.


Many in the community want to help our clients and want to know what plans we have put in place to reach the most vulnerable.


You can be reassured we remain committed to providing the best care we can offer to all of our clients during these challenging times.


We continue to closely follow the community needs of the community we serve and how we address these ever changing needs.
