Program Highlights:


Children’s Adoption Services has a long-standing program in Haiti and was re-accredited by Institut du Bien-Être Social et de Recherches (IBESR) in 2016. The close proximity of Haiti to the United States allows the potential families to make multiple trips to Haiti while waiting for the adoption to be finalized. The available children are 6 months and older at the time of referral and in good overall health. The children reside in accredited orphanages called crèches. Some crèches offer preschool classes for children as young as age two.
