About Us

family@2xAdoption Options is the nonprofit, nonsectarian adoption program of Jewish Family Service of RI. Licensed in both Rhode Island and Massachusetts, Adoption Options has offices in Providence and Attleboro.

Adoption Options is run by caring professionals with many years of experience connecting families through adoption. Our staff of licensed, independent clinical social workers provide personal and affordable services to birth parents, adoptive parents, and adoptees.

We welcome families of all types, including traditional, single-parent, and LGBTQ families that are considering adoption as a choice.

Help with All Facets of Adoption

Our work with all members of the adoption community is focused on helping individuals understand their options and make the most informed choices for their future. We provide a full range of services to support families throughout the adoption process:

  • Comprehensive services for women experiencing an unplanned pregnancy.
  • Information, resources, and supportive counseling before, during, and after adoption.
  • Home studies to prepare for domestic or international adoption.
  • Domestic placement of infants.
  • Coordination of services with other placement agencies, facilitators, and adoption attorneys.

Placement of infants born in Rhode Island or Massachusetts is available to families for whom we have completed a home study. More information about the Adoption Options domestic placement program is available on request.
