The Home for Little Wanderers will be offering a free, virtual information session for people interested in learning about becoming adoptive or foster parents on August 16 at 5:30 PM.

Currently in Massachusetts, there are over 8,600 children in state foster care and over 3,400 children with a goal of adoption. Over 1,200 of these children have no identified adoption resource such as a relative or foster parent.

The Home’s adoption and foster programs provide all the necessary training, licensing, matching, and supportive services for families to adopt or foster. The Home encourages adoptive and foster parents from all races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, gender identities, socio-economic backgrounds and religions. Adoptive or foster parents can be couples or single individuals. Children come from a variety of backgrounds and many have experienced multiple types of maltreatment such as neglect or abuse.

Participants will learn about Intensive Foster Care and the steps to becoming a foster or adoptive parent, including how to participate in the Massachusetts Approach to Partnerships in Parenting (MAPP) Training certification, which is required for adoption, and how to become a licensed foster parent. Details are available at www.thehome.org/adoption.

To register for the virtual information session, contact Lucy Collins at the Home for Little Wanderers at lcollins@thehome.org.
