Post Adoption Program

Children’s Home Society understands that adoption is a lifelong process. We are committed to providing high-quality, personalized support services for children and families starting at the adoptive placement through finalization and beyond. Throughout the lifetime of adoption loss, grief, identify, attachment, and trauma impact children and their families. Our well-rounded program is designed to meet the individual needs of each child and family—from advocacy to respite—with the goal of building strong, permanent families.

The CHS Post Adoption Program has recently entered into a new consortium model, in collaboration with the Virginia Department of Social Services and other service providers in the state—in order to efficiently and comprehensively serve all of Central and Northern Virginia’s adoptive families. You may notice that some of our offerings have changed and been renamed. But whether you live in Central or Northern Virginia, you can be confident that Children’s Home Society will continue to provide the same—and even better—levels of high quality, evidence-based, trauma-informed services as before.
