SNAP - Special Needs Adoption Program
SNAP is the Kentucky Special Needs Adoption Program in the Department for Community Based Services, the state's public child welfare agency. SNAP began in 1979 in response to the increasing number of children who were spending too long in care without a permanent foster home.
Thank you for considering Kentucky’s waiting children. All of the SNAP children who are photo listed on this Web site are legally free for adoption, and do not have an identified adoptive family. The children identified in sibling groups must be adopted together and not individually. For agency information or for information in regard to the listed children please call (800)928-4303 or (800) 432-9346, or e-mail the SNAP specialist listed under the child’s name. Please have the ID for the child(ren) you are interested in, which is listed under the child’s photo, and fill out the inquiry interest form.

Please note: Photographs and profiles of waiting children are very effective in helping them find loving families. As you get to know the children on these web pages, please remember that they live in our communities. They may attend school or church with someone you know. We ask for your help in guarding their privacy. Thank you.
