Illinois Licensed Adoption Agencies

To protect the rights and well-being of children, birth parents and adoptive families, Illinois law requires all Illinois agencies providing adoption services to be licensed by DCFS, and the law requires all out-of-state and foreign adoption agencies to be otherwise licensed, registered or approved by DCFS. If you have questions about whether an agency is licensed to provide services in Illinois, contact our Adoption Support Line at 1-877-746-0829.

Below is the most recent listing of licensed Illinois adoption agencies in Illinois. Agencies that provide adoption services for children in DCFS care are shown in bold. For more information on the legal rights of birth parents and adoptive parents, visit our Downloads section below.
