New Families is not a certified adoption agency. However, we are still able to work with families interested in foster-to-adopting and are often able to use the same home study completed during the Resource Family Approval process for the adoption, simplifying the process and reducing fees for families. Our social workers work with the family and the child’s adoption worker to ensure the family is supported through the adoption process, and we have had many successful adoptions by families within our agency.

The first step to becoming a foster-to-adopt family is to become certified as a Resource Family, so that potential children in the adoptions unit are able to be placed into your family’s home.
