Adoption Services

  • 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.
