Adoption


The word alone seems full of questions. The process is unknown to most who haven't been through it, as are the rewards.

Concerned Persons For Adoption (CPFA) is a non-profit organization in the State of New Jersey dedicated to the belief that every child deserves a family. CPFA is not an adoption agency, but a volunteer organization working to support those who wish to adopt, and to provide educational and networking resources to those who have adopted.

The Lynne Witkin Scholarship

offered by

Concerned Persons for Adoption

Lynne Witkin was a social worker, adoptive parent and volunteer advocate for adoption. She also served as president of Concerned Persons for Adoption (CPFA), the support group for those touched by adoption. Lynne recognized the need for an annual gathering of professionals and parents. In 1979 she pioneered the first "Let's Talk Adoption" Conference sponsored by CPFA. This well regarded conference continued after her passing, with the most recent one being held virtually in March 2022.

The intent of the Lynne Witkin scholarship is to benefit and encourage qualified social work majors interested in pursuing a career in the area of adoption/child welfare. There are currently over a half million children in the U.S. in foster care. More than 100,000 of these are awaiting adoptive parents. There is a critical need for caring, capable social workers to enter the field of child welfare - protective services, foster care, adoption, post-adoption services and the like, especially at this time in New Jersey.

The scholarship winner will be announced May 1, 2022.
