Domestic Adoptions in Pennsylvania

Welcome House® started its partnership with the Statewide Adoption Network of Pennsylvania (SWAN) in 1994 and collaborates with County Children and Youth Social Service Agencies to match waiting children with families. We hope you will open your heart and home to a child from Pennsylvania.
