More than 28,000 have been adopted through CHSW. In the past 120 years, we have transformed into an integrated, comprehensive multi-service provider that helps children in their current home or finds them new families.
Records and Reunions: CHSW acts as a confidential intermediary and conducts a search for adoptees and birth parents separated through adoption in Washington state. To request a file, receive information or obtain a birth certificate. Learn more
Wenatchee Foster Care Program: This program brings together highly trained foster parents with CHSW staff to provide a safe, nurturing environment for children who can’t remain in the home.
Wendy’s Wonderful Kids: A national program of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, was established to encourage adoption of children who are 9 years or older and/or who have special needs from the foster care system. Our specially-trained adoption recruiters focus on older children, sibling groups and children with special needs. Learn more
Adoption Home Studies: We are no longer taking applications for domestic or international adoption home studies as CHSW is primarily focused on finding adoptive homes for children in Washington State's foster care system. For more information about becoming an adoptive family for a child in foster care, contact Courtney Angeles, Director of Adoption Services at 253-278-3745.
