Foster-to-Adopt and Adoption programs are offered by agencies to match “waiting children” (in the custody of the public child welfare system) with carefully screened and trained families who want to add to their families through adoption. Programs typically provide adoptive family recruitment, training, family assessments and post-adoption support services. All agencies that provide adoption programs are licensed by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.
