Home Services

Families United Network is dedicated to assisting your family through your unique international or domestic adoption journey. The first step in your journey is to complete a home study. We will help you through this process and make it as transparent as possible.

The home study can be personalized to meet the needs of the placement agency (Primary Provider) you may be working with. Our home study services are available to the entire state of Pennsylvania and we have flexible scheduling options.

The home study steps include:

  1. We will review your inquiry information
  2. We will return the Application, Retainer Agreement and Deposit
  3. You will receive a handbook with instructions and forms needed to complete the home study
  4. We will contact you to schedule your first home visit
  5. You will participate in a home interview with us
  6. You will complete the forms, documents, clearances, health statement, training and references needed for a home study and make sure we receive them.
  7. We will work with your placement agency to ensure the home study meets their needs for the adoption. We will review the interagency agreements.
  8. We will give you and your placement agency copies of your completed home study.
  9. We will always track the expiration dates of your home study to ensure compliance.
