Adoption is a life long journey. The needs of the adoptive parents and their children do not end when adoption is finalized. Santa Clara County Department of Family and Children Post Adoption Services unit is a continuing resource for information, support and services to the adoption triad (adoptive parent, adoptee and birth parent) once the adoption is finalized.
Santa Clara County has a unit of Social Workers dedicated to helping the adoption triad members. Our goal is to provide support and assistance through information and referral, financial assistance and adoption services.
Post adoption social workers are available to provide information regarding connection to community agencies and resources, provide information on how to obtain non identifying information about an adoption, provide assistance in obtaining forms for contact/reunions, provide information about the adoption assistance program in California and provide information about our adoption wraparound program and adoption camp.
