How to Adopt

Welcome to Spence-Chapin!

For over 100 years, Spence-Chapin has been finding loving adoptive parents for children in need of adoption. Our team of experienced social workers will be there for you to provide guidance, education and emotional support throughout the adoption process. Spence-Chapin has found adoptive families for over 20,000 children since 1908.

 

We advocate for all children waiting for adoption as we support and guide families through the adoption process. We strive to reduce barriers to adoption and that’s why Spence-Chapin advocates fiercely for all types of parents to be eligible to adopt, sets our Professional Service fees lower than average adoption costs, and provides financial resources whenever possible. All families adopting through Spence-Chapin have access to the Adoption Finance Coach, a private coach who offers adoptive families the tools they need to create a customized financial plan to fund their adoption. Our commitment to adoptive parents, adopted people, and birth parents is why we guide families with lifelong support and education through our Modern Family Center. 


Spence-Chapin promotes equal opportunity for all clients by complying with local, state and federal laws and regulations. We do not exclude, deny applicants, or otherwise discriminate on the basis of race, ancestry, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, age, disability, citizenship, military device obligation, veteran status or any other basis protected by federal, state or local laws. Our policies and practices are intended to ensure that all clients are treated equally.
