Pennsylvania Statewide Adoption Network (SWAN)


Child to Family Connections is a proud affiliate of the Pennsylvania Statewide Adoption Network (SWAN). SWAN is a partnership among the Department of Human Services, the Pennsylvania Adoption Exchange, public and private adoption agencies, organizations, advocates, judges, the legal community, and foster and adoptive parents. The goal of SWAN is to build a collaborative process, to expedite permanency for all children, and to help prepare them for their forever family. Every child is eligible to receive SWAN services as soon as they enter foster care regardless of their permanency goal.

Child to Family Connections provides child profiles, child preparation services, family profiles, matching, and finalization for children and families in the northwest Pennsylvania area. Since 2006, Child to Family Connections has finalized over 40 SWAN adoptions. Child to Family Connections and its experienced staff pride themselves on their ability to help all children move towards permanency because every child deserves a family to call their own.
