    Children We Place:

    AASK does not have custody of children. We work to find homes for:
    Children in the custody of county child welfare agencies in California (and occasionally in other states) following abuse or neglect by their birth parents; or
    disabled infants for whom birth parents desire to make a plan of adoption

    Prospective Foster and Adoptive Parents can be:

    • Single, Married, or Partnered
    • Gay or Lesbian
    • Parent or Grandparent
    • Disabled
    • Homeowner or Renter
    • Low or Moderate Income
