America World is licensed to provide home study, post adoption, and other social services in 21 states, while providing adoption placement services in all 50 states. To help make the intake process more efficient for you, we have recently added a Social Services Only application for people desiring to use America World as their home study agency, but not the placing agency.
Before filling out this application, please read about your state on our State Offices page to determine if America World can provide your social services. If this service is offered in your state, go to our Application page to begin.
If you already have an account with America World, log in. If you do not have an account, click "Create a New Account" and fill out the brief form. This is necessary so our system can save your information if you cannot complete the application in one sitting. Once the account is created, log in and click "Apply" on the menu.
On the main Apply page, click the drop down menu under "Application Type" and select "Social Services Only." Give the application a name that you will remember and then click "Create New Application."
After reading the information on the next page, click the orange link that says "Submit the Online Application." If you have already started an application, select your nicknamed application and then click this link to continue filling it out or complete it. Or, if you have previously created an account and you are brought to this page first, select "Create a New Application" and follow the steps above to fill out the appropriate application. When you have fully completed and submitted the application, click the second orange link to submit payment. A social worker will contact you after reviewing your application.
Please contact us at 800-429-3369 if you experience issues with your application process or have any questions.
NOTE: do not select or fill out a "Domestic" application if you have not already spoken with a Program Director.
