Information and Referral

A REACH social worker, who understands the needs of adoptive families and the urgency in finding the needed services, will refer families to adoption-competent community service providers. The REACH social worker will assess and respond to each adoptive family’s specific needs, questions and concerns, and collaborate in making referrals. REACH staff members network with local child serving agencies and make referrals to mental health providers familiar with adoption, special education liaisons, pediatric specialists, regional centers, and family resource centers. The REACH Tulare County program hosts several support groups and adoptive families also have access to the REACH Lending Library. Our Adoption Services Resource Directory lists support services for families in Tulare and Kings Counties.
