This study explored the need for and use of support by preadoptive families of children with special needs in the Hope for the Children program. The families live in a community alongside other foster and adoptive parents, senior citizen volunteers, tutors, therapists, mentors, and family advocates, and receive extensive community supports. Descriptive results from the study provide a basis for recommendations about the use of coordinated service delivery systems to promote adoption success.
