Tulare County Adoption Program

Tulare County is committed to the belief that children deserve and need a permanent home, but for some Tulare County children, returning to their birth families is not possible. Adoption is the permanent, legal transfer of parental rights and responsibilities from a child’s biological parents to the adoptive parents.  Adoption is intended to provide a child with a permanent and stable family. Tulare County Child Welfare Services is licensed as a Public Adoption Agency by the California Department of Social Services.  The Adoptions Program is responsible for locating and preparing families for children who are relinquished or who are dependents of Tulare County Juvenile Court due to neglect, abuse, or abandonment, and cannot return to their birth families.


Tulare County Adoptions is always looking for residents who have considered becoming an adoptive parent, but may have been hesitant to ask questions!  Please feel free to contact us, our friendly staff will assist you in gathering information and answering every question you need in order to consider this important step in the life of a child.
