When CSSW first opened its doors in 1959, adoption and counseling were the main focus. Sixty years later, programs and staff have greatly expanded. In addition to focusing on finding children happy and loving homes, support for low income and teen moms, counseling for adoptive parents and birth mothers, search and reunion services for those who either made adoption plans or were adopted through CSSW are available.
Through a voluntary and open approach, CSSW places infants for domestic (U.S.) adoption. Counseling and services for birth parents before, during, and after the adoption process are provided.
CSSW facilitates adoptions for legally available children of all ages. These children have been involved in the foster care system and need of a loving, stable family in a forever home.
Ongoing support, education, and counseling to all involved in the adoption circle – birth parents, adoptive families, and adoptees of all ages. Monthly support groups are open to the public.
