How Necco guides you through the adoption journey
The path to adoption is nearly identical to foster care.
ADOPTION THROUGH FOSTER CARE
Thousands of children are waiting for their "forever home." Necco's Foster2Adopt Program places children with loving foster parents who want to build families by adoption through foster care. When you decide you'd like to adopt your foster child, it's a simple matter of connecting with Necco to express your interest. From there you and your foster child will take part in a non-invasive legal process in order to legally adopt your child and ensure he/she remains a permanent member of your family! Don't worry, Necco will be right there with you throughout your journey to educate and provide resources and support.
Most Necco locations are certified for foster care and adoption, including our Foster2Adopt program. Fortunately, the process is the same to become a foster or adoptive parent. Whichever path you choose, you will need to attend an orientation session, either in your home or our office, where we will answer questions and discuss the path to adoption.
Our Necco Adoption Specialists are here to help you navigate every step of the process! You will work with many qualified and passionate members of our team, all with the goal to help you adopt.
Necco continues to provide services even after the child has been adopted. When a foster parent or adoptive parent chooses Necco to facilitate the foster or adoption process, they join the Necco family. Necco surrounds family with support and resources to ensure the best outcome for both family and children. While the child is in foster care, Necco provides 24-hour, 7 days a week need-based care to the foster parent(s) and the child. Once the child has been adopted, Necco will continue to provide resources, connections, and overall support for the family. Additionally, the child has the opportunity to enroll in outpatient services in order to receive continued treatment, if needed.
HOW MUCH DOES ADOPTION COST?
Creating a forever family through foster-to-adopt is rewarding and priceless. Adoptions through foster care are often funded by the state and in most cases, there are few or no fees. Federal or State programs offer assistance to remove the barriers that may prevent a family from adopting through foster care. Adoption assistance can include medical assistance and monthly maintenance payments.
Tax benefits exist for adoption to include both a tax credit for qualified adoption expenses paid to adopt an eligible child and an exclusion from income for employer-provided adoption assistance.
