Many different paths lead to adoption, but all begin with the desire to build a family.
Sierra is licensed to provide foster care and adoption services in twelve counties: Amador, Butte, El Dorado, Nevada, Placer, Sacramento, San Joaquin, Sierra, Solano, Sutter, Yolo, and Yuba. These services are offered from offices in Auburn, Nevada City, and Sacramento. Sierra also provides post-adoption services to rural Northern California counties at one California Department of Social Services site in Chico.
Sierra Forever Families helps simplify the journey by providing guidance and education, and helping families set realistic expectations for their experience. We are committed to providing the resources, insights and support each family needs to establish and maintain a stable and caring home.
Below is an outline of the basic foster-adoption process and what families can expect to encounter. The process can be long, but we’re here to support you every step of the way.
