Program Overview

At times, the Merced County Human Services Agency must facilitate adoptions for children that become involved with Child Welfare Services. If the child cannot be returned home, a permanent solution must be sought. While adopting a child is a very noble act, it can be quite expensive. Aid-to-Adoptions helps to alleviate this added expense.
Aid-to-Adoptions provides cash assistance to adoptive families. This assistance can help smooth the transition of a new family member and pay for necessities for years to come.
