Programs1Adoptions

The Adoption Program offers Structured Analysis Family Evaluation (SAFE) home studies free of charge to families in cooperation with county placing agencies to facilitate matching adoptive families with waiting children.  This home study process allows every ChildNet certified foster family to be considered a resource family, affording them the opportunity to have first choice to adopt a child with whom they have formed a strong bond.  If reunification efforts are unsuccessful, they can become a “forever family” for that child.  Cooperative post-placement supervision and adoption finalization services are also offered by the program.

Foster Family NetworkPrograms4

Foster Family Network (FFN) is licensed by the State of California, Community Care Licensing Division (CCL). Recognizing the need to address the increasing demand for quality foster homes for children, ChildNet established Foster Family Network. Many of these children are victims of physical, sexual and emotional abuse, neglect and/or abandonment. The program accepts boys, girls and non-minor dependents (over age 18) for placement in loving foster homes. Children are referred to FFN by county child welfare/social services agencies.

FFN recruits and trains all types of families – single parents, married couples, retirees, same-sex couples – who are willing to provide a warm, stable, nurturing environment for these children, and who can meet all certification requirements set forth by the State of California and local county placing agencies. FFN’s social-work staff provides ongoing training and support for the foster families. Read more…
