Pennsylvania’s foremost resource for adoption information, referral services, support, and education
How to Foster or Adopt
Black Adoption Services began as a recruitment effort to bring forth African American families to adopt African American children who were over represented in the child welfare system. In 1988, BAS was expanded to include licensed adoption and foster care programs to support African American families throughout the adoption process. Over the years, BAS has provided culturally sensitive support to families from pre-service training, through the homestudy process, placement and eventual finalization.
