Adoption Options

Providence, RI 02904 | (401) 331-5437

Adoption Options is the nonprofit, nonsectarian adoption program of Jewish Family Service with offices in Providence, Rhode Island and Attleboro, Massachusetts. While adoption services have been offered by Jewish Family Service for many decades, we have significantly expanded our program over the last several years. The professional staff at Adoption Options provides a full range of affordable services to birth parents, adoptive parents, and children. Our work with all members of the adoption triad is focused on helping individuals to understand their options and make the most informed choices for their future. We provide education and resources for families to understand the differences between the many types of adoptions, from domestic to international. Our services include supportive counseling throughout the adoption process as well as providing home studies. We place infants as well as coordinate services with other placement agencies, facilitators and adoption attorneys.

Children's Friend - Adoption

Providence, RI 02903 | (401) 276-4300

As the oldest adoption agency in Rhode Island, Children’s Friend has been placing children in loving homes through our foster care program for more than 174 years. The goal of our program is to find safe and stable homes for children in need. The adoption program at Children’s Friend finds permanent, loving homes for children. Many of the children we place in adoptive homes are born to families that are struggling with a variety of social and economic problems. Though they are unable to care for their children, these parents want their children to have safe, stable, loving families. All of the children available for adoption need families who will give them the love and security they need to grow up to be healthy and strong.

Communities for People, Inc. - Foster Care and Adoption

Providence, RI 02909 | (401) 273-7103

The Families for Children Program is an adoption and foster care service that places high-risk children who have experienced multiple disruptions in their lives in safe, stable, and loving homes. The program's staff provides a full range of case management services including individual and family casework, group work with children and families, and community organization. The Families for Children staff conducts a comprehensive assessment of the strengths and requirements of each potential home and child. Staff members work with families and children to prepare them for their new lives together. The program provides financial, clinical, and on-call crisis support. Families for Children also offers quarterly pre-service training for prospective foster and adoptive parents. A eight-ten week Model Approach Partnership for Parenting (MAPP) course is held at CFP's Providence office and is free of charge. There is no obligation to proceed with the adoption or foster care process beyond the course.

Family Service of RI

Providence, RI 02905 | (401) 331-1350

All across Rhode Island there are children who need foster homes. Whether due to physical abuse, mental health problems or a family emergency, at times foster care is necessary. Foster parents receive the support of a team of clinicians and case managers, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. They respond to any phone call within 10 minutes. Foster parents receive tax-free dollars to support the placement, plus free medical coverage for the child and a clothing allowance. Many of the children ready for placement are school age. Occasionally there are younger children. Becoming a foster parent is a good first step toward adoption; however, one can become a foster parent even if adoption is not part of the plan.

Adoption Rhode Island

Providence, RI 02903 | (401) 865-6000

Adoption Rhode Island is a private nonprofit organization dedicated to finding families for children in state care and supporting those children and families throughout the adoption process. We also provide child, youth and family support services, education, training, advocacy, and referrals. We are proud to have found adoptive families for more than 1200 children, over the years, but there are hundreds of others in Rhode Island at any given time who need forever families. In terms of approach, Adoption Rhode Island embraces our Adopt Hope Model as the foundation upon which all else is built, and the core of all education, support, recruitment and advocacy that Adoption Rhode Island provides. The Adopt Hope Model is based on the belief that instilling and maintaining a sense of hope among the children and families we serve strongly influences positive outcomes, and is paramount to long-term success. As a nonprofit agency, we rely heavily on your donations and volunteer contributions to continue serving waiting children. Everyone has something to offer a child in state care. Please help us make a difference.
