  • Howard County Department of Social Services, Adoption

    Agency: Howard County Department of Social Services

    ADOPTION: Provides services which enable children to become available for adoption and to be placed with adoptive parents. Services are provided for children who have been abandoned or who have been removed and reunification or relative placement is no longer the permanent plan.   

    Children are placed with adoptive parents who have previously applied to adopt and have been approved to do so through a home study process. Most of the children freed for adoption have special needs and disabilities. This program's focus is locating stable homes for children involved with DSS/Public Agencies. Children up for adoption have been removed from their original homes and they will be on the reunification track for 15 months out of 22 months.
