VDSS Needs Assessment of Adoptive Families in Virginia

The Virginia Department of Social Services is partnering with Child Trends (a non-profit research organization) to conduct a needs assessment of adoptive families in Virginia, which includes a 20-minute voluntary survey of adoptive parents. The survey is for all adoptive parents including private adoptions, adoptions from foster care, parents of in-tact adoptive families, and parents of families who have experienced disrupted or disturbed adoptions. The anonymous survey will ask about your experiences with and need for post-adoption services. Each participant will receive a $25 gift card for completing the survey. If you are interested in taking the survey, please email vdsssurvey@childtrends.org.
