Adoption Options

Adoption Options is the nonprofit, nonsectarian adoption program of Jewish Collaborative Services. Licensed in both Rhode Island and Massachusetts, Adoption Options has offices in Providence and Attleboro.

Help with All Facets of Adoption

Adoption Options is run by caring professionals with many years of experience connecting families through adoption. Our licensed, independent clinical social workers provide personal and affordable services to birth parents, adoptive parents and adoptees.

At Adoption Options, we welcome all families. Our services are available for traditional two-parent families, single-parent families and LGBTQ families who are considering adoption as a choice.

If you are thinking about making an adoption plan for your baby or expanding your family through adoption, we can help. We work with all members of the adoption community to help them understand their options and make the most informed choices for their future.

FOR BIRTH PARENTS

If you are thinking about adoption, we’ll help you review your choices to do what’s best for you and your child. If you decide to make an adoption plan, our professionals can provide counseling and other support, including limited assistance with medical expenses.  Learn more.

FOR ADOPTIVE PARENTS

Our adoption professionals offer a personal, no-cost consultation to answer all of your adoption questions. If you decide to move forward, they will help you complete a Home Study. They will remain in contact regardless of the agency you choose.  Learn more.

FOR HEALTH PROFESSIONALS

Our adoption social workers offer free on-site training to help health professionals talk with clients about adoption. We also provide fact sheets with FAQs, legal facts, and other information to guide clients in making this important decision.  Learn more.
