Special Needs Adoption and Permanency Services

OUR MISSION: To support children in foster care who have special needs, to decrease the time they wait for permanent families, and to expand the geographical boundaries in which the best adoptive families may be found.

Please note: Ads that appear above are a fundraising tool used by SNAPS. They are not an endorsement by our staff, nor by our Board of Directors for any of the services offered. We neither choose nor control what is listed there. PLEASE BE CAUTIOUS. DO NOT use adoption or referral agencies that are not licensed in your state.


Our thanks to Wednesday's Child supporters, who have donated goods or services. Because of their generosity, we are able to provide meaningful activities for children and valuable communication between waiting children and prospective families.
