Adoptive homes are also located through a cooperative effort whereby other county Health and Human Services Agency send approved family profiles to this agency or through the state’s NC Kids website or other private licensing agencies.
Call 828-452-6620 and ask to speak to someone about Adoption.
Post-Adoption Services are available to families who adopt children who were in HHSA custody.
The primary goal of this program is to locate permanent, loving homes for children who are in the Health and Human Services Agency custody and whose plan is adoption.
Step-Parent and private adoptions are processed through this program.
This is accomplished through recruitment efforts and through people who come to the agency voluntarily interested in providing a home for a child.
