About Northeast Ohio Adoption Services

NOAS logo

NOAS is a private, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) agency incorporated in 1978 for the purpose of developing and supporting lifelong adoptive families for children with special needs. The children NOAS serves are school-age, brothers and sisters, and children with physical, developmental, and emotional challenges.

Removed from birth families by court action, many of the children have experienced severe abuse and neglect, endured multiple placements in foster homes, group home care, and residential facilities.For more information about Northeast Ohio Adoption Services agency or to view some of the waiting children, visit
