Important Announcement: Adoption Options will Close on August 31, 2018

On August 31, 2018, the Adoption Options program will close. We are no longer accepting new families into the Adoption Options program.

This was not an easy decision, given our 70-year history. But it has become financially unsustainable to maintain this program.  During the next few months, we will complete adoptions due to finalize before August 31, 2018 and we will transfer all others to another New Jersey licensed adoption agency. 

Leading up to August 31, we will work with our waiting families and will assist them in transitioning to a new agency.  We have identified reputable agencies that are able to help our families continue their adoption journey. While this program is what started our ministry and we are proud of this history, our mission is to respond to the changing times and meet the needs of individuals in New Jersey.  It is the mission that guides us and helps to evolve, adapt and to change us into a leading social services organization for the residents of New Jersey.
