Foster Care &
Adoption Home Studies
An Adoption Home Study is the first step in the adoption process and is required when a family wants to adopt. Woodfords provides home study services to families. The agency aims to act as a partner to interested families and offer support to help them realize their dream of adoption by providing the service of a completed home study. Our staff will walk you through each step of the adoption home study process and will provide you with the support and education needed to complete the study.
Therapeutic Foster Care
Woodfords provides treatment-level foster care to children ages 3 to 21 with developmental, emotional and/or medical disabilities who cannot reside with their biological family and are in the custody of the Maine Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). With the support of trained foster parents and Woodfords’ treatment team, children are offered support and guidance with challenges related to behavior, social and emotional needs, learning, psychological diagnoses, and more.
