Thank you for your interest in the Catholic Adoption Services of Washington State, a program of Catholic Community Services of Western Washington. Catholic Adoption Services of Washington State provides adoption planning for birth mothers and adoptive placement services throughout Washington State.  We have been providing these services since 1937.

Eligibility for birth parents:  Any woman who is pregnant or who has recently delivered and would like support and assistance in exploring plans for her child is eligible for our services. Some things you should know before you get started:

  • You do not have to be Catholic to receive services.
  • Not all of our approved adoptive families are of the Catholic faith.
  • We will make our services convenient for you. We will meet in your home in your community or in our offices.
  • Our long history of quality professional services and our strong reputation attracts birth parents and adoptive couples of broad diversity.
  • We provide services to all who request them, without regard to color, gender, race, ethnicity, religious preference, or ultimate plan for her child.
  • Services are provided at no cost to the pregnant woman.
