Adoptions Services

Catholic Charities provides home studies and post-placement services for families wishing to adopt abroad. Catholic Charities does not have a direct source of children in other countries. We can refer you to various agencies and sources that can assist you in arranging an international adoptive placement.

Pregnancy Counseling

Catholic Charities of Eastern Virginia offers free, confidential pregnancy counseling to any woman facing an unplanned pregnancy.

Post-Adoption Services

Catholic Charities of Eastern Virginia’s Post Adoption Services Program utilizes the evidence-based Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) approach developed by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross. The Goal of the program  is to help educate, support and provide tools and materials to help families maintain successful adoptive placements, especially for families who have adopted children from difficult backgrounds.


Foster Care

Catholic Charities can assist families who are interested in pursuing adoption through the foster care system. Catholic Charities can provide home study and post placement services. Catholic Charities also helps facilitate the placement of a child legally free for adoption through the foster care system by sending out a family’s home study at their request and acting as the intermediary between the family and the child’s worker.
