Founder & President/CEO
Adoptions From The Heart

Maxine Chalker, MSW/LSW is the Founder and President/CEO of Adoptions From The Heart, a non-profit, non sectarian full service adoption agency.  Maxine graduated from Temple University Summa cum Laude with a BSW and then received advanced standing for her MSW degree.  She was also a Presidential Scholar.  Maxine, an adoptee herself, founded the agency because she felt that traditional adoption did not benefit all members of the adoption triad.  Running an organization for 32 years has shown many ups/downs and changes which keep her on her toes and allow for continued growth as Adoptions From The Heart is one of the leading agencies in the country placing domestic infants for adoption.
