Holt International

Home Study and Post-Placement Services

Complete Your Home Study Through a Holt Branch Office or Cooperating Agency!

The home study is a key piece of your adoption process

Before we can match you with a child, a licensed social worker in your state needs to prepare this written report about your family. After your child comes home, you're in the home stretch, but you still have one final requirement. The last step in the process is a series of post-placement reports, also completed by a local social worker.

For families adopting through Holt, our branch offices can provide you with both of these direct services. If you don't live in one of these states, Holt also has a strong network of cooperating agencies providing direct services in every part of the United States.

To get started with your home study, click on your state below to find a Holt branch office or a list of cooperating agencies. Please note: All families adopting from China must use a COA/Hague-accredited agency. All families adopting from Korea must use a Hague-accredited agency.

Direct Services for Non-Holt Families

If you are working with a different agency to adopt a child but live in a Holt branch state, Holt can still provide your home study and post-placement services. For more information, click on your state.
