Spence-Chapin Services to Families and Children

Spence-Chapin was founded over 100 years ago as a non-profit adoption organization and in the past century of service we've grown with the needs of our community. Today we continue our non-profit legacy of international and domestic adoption programs with a focus on finding adoptive families for the children most in need of adoption- children with special needs, siblings, and older children. A team of social workers are dedicated to providing non-judgmental, unbiased, free options counseling for NYC area women and their partners who are unsure about parenting.

Our Modern Family Center at Spence-Chapin is committed to building and strengthening today’s modern families. Our staff offers culturally sensitive, adoption-competent, bi-lingual, and LGBTQ-affirming care. We offer mental health counseling, workshops for kids and teens, social events, community education, and much more.

We encourage you to get to know us and learn about the many ways we're working with families across the country and helping children around the world.

Our programs are funded through donations from our community – your support allows us to serve every member of our community and ensure that we can continue to empower families through Spence-Chapin & Modern Family Center services.


Every child deserves a family. We are committed to lowering barriers in the adoption system for every parent seeking a child, and children most in need.
