After many decades of providing adoption services to the local community, as of January 1, 2019, Jewish Family Service of Rochester will no longer provide adoption home studies.  We will continue to respond to inquiries with information and referral.

We are fortunate in that we can enthusiastically refer you to our colleagues in the community at Catholic Family Center. CFC has a full-service, NYS authorized and Hague accredited adoption program.  The CFC staff is very experienced in all aspects of adoption including domestic infant, international adoption of toddlers and older children and the adoption of older, waiting children from the US foster care system. You can reach the CFC Adoption Program’s administrative assistant at (585) 546-7220 ext. 4801.  She will direct you to the appropriate social worker. Please let her know you were referred by JFS.  Best wishes on your adoption journey.
