Foster to Adopt
While the goal of foster care is reunification with the family of origin, sometimes that's not possible. Necco's Foster to Adopt program is how we work to permanently place these kids with loving families.
How does foster to adopt work?
The steps to adoption are the same as those required to become a foster parent. The difference is that our team will focus on placing children who are either eligible for adoption or are likely to become eligible for adoption.

Once training is complete and your home study has been approved, you are ready to accept a child into your home. Next step...ADOPTION!
How much does Foster to Adopt cost?
Adoptions through foster care are often funded by the state and in most cases there are few or no fees. In addition, Federal or State programs offer assistance to remove the barriers to adopting through foster care, including tax benefits for income and expenses.
The qualified Necco team will be there every step of the way to answer financial questions and guide your family in ways to keep your budget in tact.
Necco is a close-knit, social organization that takes pride in building families. We’re committed to the foster parents and foster children we serve and we work hard to find the ideal match for both parent and child in order to limit moves and additional trauma that foster children often experience.
Resources and Advocacy
Necco offers access to more resources and support to parents than what’s available working directly with the state. Our adoption specialists are happy to answer all of your adoption-related questions and guide you on your path to providing “forever homes” to children in need.
With Necco, you’ll be assigned a Licensing Specialist who will establish that you are a foster to adopt home during your approval process. This will help match children who are in need of a loving, adoptive home.
Since 1996 we have facilitated over 10,000 adoptions! While the goal of foster care is reunification with the family of origin, sometimes that's not possible. Necco's Foster to Adopt program is how we work to permanently place these kids with loving families.
Ensuring the Best "Fit" with your Family
Parents adopting foster children have maximum visibility into a child's physical and emotional health, often spending many months raising the child while the adoption works through the court system. This unique advantage of Foster to Adopt means you will be capable of making the most informed decisions possible when building your family.
