In 1989, Indiana established a program for hard to place children who are in the custody of the state. This is a federally mandated program that Indiana legislated under IC 31-19-27. Over 7,000 Indiana special needs children have been placed with adoptive families since 1990.
The Special Needs Adoption Program (SNAP) includes an Adoption Manager, a SNAP Supervisor and seven adoption specialists serving in Indiana's 92 counties. The SNAP Specialists assist in the adoptive placement of waiting children by working collaboratively with families, case managers and service providers.
