The JF&CS Adoption Program is responsible for securing suitable, nurturing, permanent Jewish homes for children/youth in our care who are eligible for adoption. Post-adoption disclosure and counselling support is available to families facing the particular challenges that parenting adopted children may raise.
Jewish Family and Child Service strives to ensure that every child/youth in our care has a permanent life-long connection to someone from the Jewish Community. This could mean that no matter how old they are, or if they are now an adult, they have a place at someone’s Shabbat Table every Friday night, or that they have a place at someone’s Seder every Passover. Every child/youth/young adult deserves to belong somewhere.
For more information, please visit the Centralized Adoption Intake Service (CAIS) which will provide introductory information to people who are curious to learn more about adoption, with a focus on public adoption. To learn more about adopting, the first step is to talk to us and let us know you're interested. Please call 416 638-7800 and ask for Intake.
