The Children's Village

New York, NY 10027 | (212) 932-9009

Of the approximately 534,000 children who have been separated from their birth parents and placed in foster care, about 126,000 can never return to their original homes. They need the nurturing and support that a permanent family can provide, and they deserve a chance to grow up feeling secure and loved. That is where special needs adoption comes into play. It’s not so much about finding a child for a family, but rather it’s about finding the most suitable family for each waiting child. “Special needs” is a phrase used to classify children who, for various reasons, have a harder time finding families willing to adopt them. Often special needs include factors such as age, background, and physical, mental, or emotional challenges. Children may also be classified as special needs if they are part of a sibling group that is being placed for adoption together, or members of a minority group. Typically, the children placed for adoption by Children’s Village are considered special needs.

The New York Foundling - Adoption and Legal Services

New York, NY 10011 | (212) 633-9300

A child loses her mother to drugs. Another is neglected by a parent who is simply unable to provide for him. The Foundling has found permanent, safe and loving adoptive homes for thousands of children over our long history. We seek to address the individual needs of each child to assure he can receive the support he needs from his new family. And we always consider whether a “kinship adoption” by a close relative is possible and appropriate. Our staff also monitors and coaches both the child and prospective adoptive family throughout the process to ease the transition, evaluate its effectiveness and assure the best “fit” possible. In every case, our goal is for every child who is unable to be raised by his own family to become part of a safe and nurturing adoptive one.

Spence-Chapin Services to Families and Children - Manhattan Office

New York, NY 10128 | (212) 369-0300

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.

Alliance for Children

New York, NY 10002 | (212) 751-4095

Alliance For Children is a full-service, private, Hague-Accredited, nonprofit adoption agency that has been in operation since 1974. We are licensed to conduct home studies for people living in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Florida, Arkansas and Texas, place children born domestically/ internationally with adoptive families throughout the US, and provide counseling services to birth parents nationwide. We work closely with other agencies, creating a large cooperative and collaborative network. We believe that children thrive and grow best when they are raised with the love and support of a forever family; we also believe that those who wish to be parents should have the opportunity for a little person to fill their lives with love and laughter. We are inspired by the children, birth parents, and adoptive families who give so much meaning to our work, and by our role in making dreams come true. In addition to working with all members of the adoption triad, we are committed to offering financial assistance to childcare institutions in order to improve the living standards of children - those awaiting placement as well as those for whom adoption may not be a possibility. We are strong advocates for older children and children with special needs, and will go the extra mile to assist them, either through adoptive placement or by providing other kinds of support and resources. What sets us apart from other agencies? All of us share a true and deep passion for the work that we do each and every day. Virtually every staff member has been touched by adoption, many on a very personal level. We know that an adoption process may be challenging, amazing, wonderful, overwhelming - perhaps all at the same time. We face the challenges of our work with fierce determination, and celebrate our families' successes with great joy. We pride ourselves on our ability to meet the needs of the adoption community with compassion, integrity, professionalism, and personalized attention and care. We are Alliance For Children.

The Children's Aid Society

New York, NY 10017 | (347) 854-0003

Each year, The Children’s Aid Society’s Adoption Program finds homes for children in need of loving, permanent families. These children have been officially freed for adoption by their birth parents and are temporarily with foster families who, for various reasons, are unable to adopt them. We seek to transition them as quickly as possible into adoptive families who can provide permanent stability and the nurturing that every child needs. Children are introduced to their potential adoptive parents slowly, so each has a chance to get to know the other. This process starts with day visits and continues to include overnight and weekend stays, and finally, if all goes well, permanent placement. Throughout this process, Children's Aid provides all the supports children and parents need to form healthy relationships and grow together as a family. We work with utmost care to find good matches for adoptive parents and children. With so many children to adopt and so many parents who want to extend their love, our work is rewarded many times over.
