  • Description
  • Permanency Partners offers comprehensive services for families in all phases of the adoption process, including: family profiles, child profiles, child preparation services, foster-to-adopt options, adoption services and post-adoption support. As reunification is not always possible for children placed in our care, Permanency Partners can assist our foster parents in adopting foster children whose natural parents’ rights have been terminated. As a licensed affiliate of the Statewide Adoption Network (SWAN), Permanency Partners, a Division of Children’s Home of York, offers adoption services that are funded and overseen by the Department of Public Welfare. Many children in Pennsylvania’s state foster care system are waiting for families. Aged 0 to 18, they are considered to be “special needs” children because they may have experienced neglect or abuse, they may be older (aged 8 to 18), they may be of a racial minority or part of a sibling group that needs to be placed together. Do you believe that every child deserves a family? So do we! Permanency Partners is committed to recruiting and preparing families to adopt the children who wait for homes in foster care. Our adoptions are state-funded, so adoptive parents pay no agency fee. In addition, we provide training to prepare our families and children for the adoption process, assist in obtaining available medical subsidies and financial assistance, and provide post-adoption services such as respite care, adoptive parent support groups and case management services. Children’s Home of York adoption services matches area children of all ages who are in need of homes with Pennsylvania families. We pair the right child with the right family through a variety of processes including family and child profiling and working with county children and youth agencies to connect waiting children and families for the purpose of adoption. Children’s Home of York employs a team approach to set long-term goals with the child and family. Admission and the provision of services are made without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, sexual orientation or disability. Children who have serious untreated drug/alcohol addictions, those with violent and assaultive behaviors or a history of fire setting and those who are actively psychotic may not be appropriate for referral.
