SUPPORTING AND PRESERVING ADOPTIVE FAMILIES, April 2014

PROFILES OF PUBLICLY FUNDED POST-ADOPTION SERVICES

SUSAN LIVINGSTON SMITH

FUNDED BY THE DAVE THOMAS FOUNDATION FOR ADOPTION

This new study, “Supporting and Preserving Adoptive Families,” provides the most extensive

examination to date of what services states are providing, who is eligible to receive them and how they are being funded. DAI is simultaneously publishing a companion report, “Keeping the Promise: The Case for Adoption Support and Preservation (ASAP),” which synthesizes past knowledge and provides new DAI research from eight states and from national data on the extent of adopted children re-entering foster care, the circumstances involved in both foster care re-entry and adoption dissolutions, and the significant number of children adopted from foster care who require ongoing mental health services.


This study was published April 2014.
