Spence-Chapin is a century old internationally respected nonprofit organization that provides adoption and adoption-related services of the highest quality. Our mission is driven by the simple belief that every child deserves a family. We have placed over 20,000 children in loving, permanent families since 1908. 

Our excellence has been acknowledged with Hague-accreditation, the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute 2011 Angel in Adoption Award, and the Human Rights Campaign 2013-14 All Children-All Families Seal of Recognition. We currently operate in the United States, Colombia, South Africa, and Bulgaria, and have offices located in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Long Island, and New Jersey.

Spence-Chapin focuses solely on finding permanent homes for older children, sibling groups, and children with special needs. We have lowered the financial barriers to adoption by providing no-fee adoption services for families who can open their lives and their hearts to this very special population. We also provide support services and resources to help these new families succeed through our Modern Family Center.
