Find out about adopting a child?The DC Child and Family Services Agency (CFSA) protects children from abuse and neglect in the District of Columbia. Along with their community partners, CFSA works to ensure that children involved in the public child welfare system grow up in safe, permanent homes with strong families.
- CFSA continuously recruits, trains and licenses District residents to be foster parents and also trains individuals, couples and families to adopt. The first step is calling (202) 671-LOVE ((202) 671-5683) where a friendly, knowledgeable social worker will speak with you and answer your questions. CFSA http://cfsa.dc.gov/ has orientation sessions for prospective foster and adoptive parents every two weeks.
