Post Adoption Support
From time to time, families may require the support of the agency well after the adoption has been finalized. Those families may call us for assistance.
For some families who experience financial hardship in providing fully for an adopted child, due to the special needs of their adopted child, a subsidy may be requested in order to secure stability for the child. Approval is based upon the needs of the child, and the family’s ability to provide for the child financially. This subsidy is reviewed with the family on an annual basis.
Changes to adoption subsidy practice may occur following the adoption and adoptive families can enquire as to whether any changes apply to their eligibility.
For families where the support issues are not financial but knowing which services may be helpful, we may be able to provide information of community services appropriate to support the child and family’s needs.
