Abbott House works with families and youth to find adoptive homes in the five boroughs of New York City, Westchester, Rockland, Dutchess and Orange counties. While the majority of our children are adopted by their foster parents, we work diligently to find permanent caring homes for all children placed with our agency. Children that are not placed within pre-adoptive homes, Abbott House recruits for wonderful families to those children in need of an adoptive home.
In the duration of the adoption process, Abbott House provides support and psycho-educational services to all families. Family reunification is an important aspect of a child’s life, especially when the children are suffering from trauma related placement. However, when reunification is not an option, our workers advocate for safe and structured environment for all children in care. Adoption Services is one of the permanent solutions for those children. Legal services are provided free of charge for those interested in the adoption process.
