HeartShare Human Services of New York - Foster Care and Adoption

Brooklyn, NY 11201 | (718) 422-4337

Every child deserves a loving and supportive home. HeartShare makes that happen through our foster care and adoption programs. We help care for hundreds of children in foster and adoptive homes throughout New York City. Our most important partners in caring for these children are our foster and pre-adoptive parents. Adoption is the most precious gift you can give to a child who cannot return to his parents. When it is determined that a child cannot return to his or her biological parents, HeartShare begins searching for adoptive parents to raise the child. Many times, the foster parents develop such a bond with the child that they become the adoptive parents. Our case managers will be with you from your first call through adoption day. You can bring hope, happiness, and a permanent home to a child or sibling group.

Spence-Chapin Services to Families and Children - Brooklyn Office

Brooklyn, NY 11238 | (646) 539-2167

SPENCE-CHAPIN IS AN ACCREDITED NONPROFIT ORGANIZATION that has been offering quality adoption services for more than 100 years. Our mission is to provide adoption and adoption-related services of the highest quality. The organization focuses on finding adoptive homes for children who need families; promoting the understanding of adoption through counseling and public education; and improving adoption's image and practice. We are growing the pool of willing adoptive parents by lowering the financial barriers to adoption. We are educating these families as they consider adoption and we’re reducing their fears that can overwhelm the process. Through our Modern Family Center we are helping each family member navigate their individual adoption stories with clarity and confidence. Our mission is driven by the simple belief that every child deserves a family. Spence-Chapin's roots can be traced to the early 1900s and the pioneering work of Clara Spence, and Dr. and Mrs. Henry Chapin, who independently established nurseries out of concern for homeless infants abandoned in hospitals and shelters. The Spence and Chapin nurseries each broke new ground in developing social work techniques for adoption and, after the merger, continued to pioneer in the adoption field. Today, Spence-Chapin is proud of our role as a prominent voice and leading advocate for adoption, and of our commitment to the well being of all members of the adoption triad: birth parents, adoptive parents, and their children.

You Gotta Believe

Brooklyn, NY 11224 | (718) 372-3003

You Gotta Believe is one of a precious few organizations in the U.S and the only organization in the New York City Metro area that limits its practice to finding permanent parents and families for young adults, teens, and pre-teens in the foster care system.

Edwin Gould Services for Children & Families, Inc. - Foster Care and Adoption Se

Brooklyn, NY 11201 | (212) 437-3540

The Foster Care and Adoption Department ensures that each child in our care is placed in a safe and nurturing environment while awaiting a stable, loving and permanent home. We work towards reuniting children with their birth family or, when this is not possible, to find adoptive homes or independent living arrangements for young adults. Providing services to children whose birth parents are unable to care for them has been central to our mission since our founding over 75 years ago. Our community-based foster care services serve thirteen community districts in Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Manhattan. Children in our care are placed in loving, stable homes as we work with their birth families to resolve the issues that brought their children into care. When children are unable to return home and the court has determined that adoption is the next step, we work to find a permanent home through adoption. In many cases, the child’s foster family is able to adopt them. When that is not possible, we must then find a loving adoptive home. Children in our care receive a comprehensive range of services including: medical screenings, mental health evaluations and services, developmental screenings and referrals, groups for teens, and case management. All children deserve safe, nurturing permanent families who can provide an unconditional, lasting commitment to them. Our charge is to make that happen. We engage a network of support, inclusive of community and family members, to empower birth parents to successfully and safely reunify their families and, to reduce the length of time that their children spend in foster care. We will also work closely with birth parents to identify individuals within their own families or social networks who can be a resource for their child. Finally, we recruit loving, committed families to become foster or adoptive resources to the children in our care.
