For over 100 years, St. Joseph’s Center has been offering the love and security of family to children in need. Counseling and support services are available to families throughout the pregnancy and adoption process, as well as the post-adoption period. Adoption Services include home studies, pre-adoption education and counseling, and post-adoption support services.

Since 1993, St. Joseph’s has been Northeastern Pennsylvania’s affiliate for the Statewide Adoption and Permanency Network (SWAN).
