Families who do not meet some or all of the above requirements may still be allowed to adopt, but they must work through an adoption agency, such as the Wasatch International Adoption Agency (WIA) to facilitate the adoption.
Additionally, if you are in the market for a career change due to job loss, you may qualify for federal Workforce Investment Act (WIA) funding to help pay for the cost of career training.
Those who are approved for WIA funding must enroll in an approved program offered by a training center or school that has been pre-approved by the state as a provider.
Contact the schools that interest you directly to inquire about requirements for admission, WIA qualifications, and information on applying for funding.
WIA is a non-profit, full-service adoption agency that specializes in international adoptions.
