TAC logo final croppedC.A.S.E. is pleased to announce that we have been awarded a highly competitive Post-Adoption Services grant from the Commonwealth of Virginia, Department of Social Services. C.A.S.E. has created a Consortium that includes two well-respected adoption agencies, Commonwealth Catholic Charities and Lutheran Family Services, as well as Radford University School of Social Work. The major goal of the Consortium is to significantly strengthen Virginia's capacity to provide adoption-competent services to underserved families in the state's Southwest/Piedmont region.

Qualified therapists will receive professional development/ education and participate in the TAC (Training for Adoption Competency) Program to enable them to provide post-adoption services to families both during the funding period and into the future. Please contact Valerie Kunsman, MSW, for further information at 301-476-8525 or


The Center for Adoption Support and Education (C.A.S.E.) strengthens the well-being of foster and adoptive families, promotes adoption awareness, enhances adoption sensitivity, and develops the skills for professionals and families to empower children to thrive.

Since our founding in 1998, C.A.S.E. has served more than 5,000 foster and adoptive families. We’ve grown to become the leading provider of pre-and-post adoption support in the Washington DC region and a trusted national – and international – resource on adoptive life for families, communities and professionals. C.A.S.E. is not an adoption agency; rather, we use an adoption-centered therapeutic approach to enhance the well-being of children and families. We serve:

  • Foster children, teens, and foster parents
  • Children and teens adopted through agencies, private adoption, and international adoption
  • Children who were adopted at birth and children who were adopted when they were older
  • Adopted adults
  • Adoptive parents, grandparents, and other family members
  • Birth siblings of adopted siblings of foster and adopted children
  • Birth parents

Studies show that the early intervention and support C.A.S.E. provides can make a huge difference in the lives, stability, and longevity of adoptive families. Our state of the art programs include:

  • Counseling
  • Professional training
  • Education
  • Family forums
  • Public awareness and Advocacy programs
  • Publications and multi-media resources
  • Youth development programs
