Adoption Home Study

For private domestic adoptions, Rebekah Children’s Services can complete a home study for you.

If you are involved in a private domestic adoption and need a home study to complete the process, Rebekah Children's Services can help! Our team of highly trained and dedicated staff are here to support you through this process and make private adoption home studies a priority so our turnaround time is fast.

What to Expect During your Home Study

You can expect to participate in a minimum of 4 hours of interview time with the home study evaluator. Additional time may be needed dependent upon family size. At least one interview will take place in your home.

You will need to complete an application along with a health and a criminal background check (FBI, DOJ and Child Abuse Index).

Our home studies start at $2950.00; there may be additional fees for distance. A 25% non-refundable deposit is required upon contract signing.  Home Study fees are used in the Foster Care Program to support our foster youth including: back to school supplies, summer camp, clothes, specialized therapy, etc.

Post adoption visits are available if needed.

We currently have the capacity to service families in Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, San Benito, Monterey, San Mateo, San Francisco, and Alameda counties.

Rebekah Children’s Services welcomes families who are of any gender, religious belief, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity and culture to join our program. Our families can consist of single parents, couples, spouses, or partners.
