Homestudy Services

The homestudy is a key piece of your adoption process. Before you can be approved to adopt, a social worker in your state needs to assess your family and prepare a written report about you. Whether you are adopting through Holt or another agency, we can provide services to your family.

Adopting through Holt?

We will guide you through the homestudy process — and your homestudy will be completed by a Holt branch office nearest you or a trusted partner agency. If you already have a homestudy, contact us to see if we can work with your homestudy agency for your adoption.

Working with another adoption agency?

Holt can complete your homestudy if you live in a state served by one of our branch offices. View the map below to see what services we offer where you live!

Our social worker always answers our questions in an extremely timely manner. If there is going to be a delay in answering, she communicates expectations very clearly, quickly and well.
