What is a SWAN Adoption?

The State Wide Adoption Network (SWAN) is a program across the country designed to support adoption and permanency through a network and management of referrals from county child protective services agencies.

SWAN addresses barriers to permanency for children and responds to the increased number of children that need and deserve a permanent family through adoption. Adoptive parents are involved in the process of matching with the child that best fits their family and the needs of the child and family, and that will be the best family for the child.

Adoptions through SWAN and county child protective services will often have provisions for subsidized costs, including home studies, attorney fees, and adoption assistance or adoption subsidy.
