Statewide Adoption and Permanency Network (SWAN)

SWAN Brochure

The Statewide Adoption and Permanency Network (SWAN) is a partnership between the Department of Human Services (DHS) and various other agencies and organizations, including Board of Child Care's programs in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. SWAN was designed to serve children by expediting their adoption permanency services.

SWAN services provided include development of preparation plans that ensure placements are a proper fit and reduce time to permanency, comprehensive summary of a child's history and specific needs, and identification and development of permanent connections and supports for all youth as they transition through foster care and residential services, and back into the community.

Referrals may be made through the SWAN portal to Board of Child Care (#105). For more information, please contact Jason Bacon, Admissions Coordinator, at (717) 766-7652 or jbacon@boardofchildcare.org.
