Help a child find their way home. Walk with us on May 21st in person or by pledge.
"At this moment, there are nearly 9,000 children in the foster care system in Massachusetts. These children have been removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect and to prevent future harm. Some will be reunited with their birth parents; others will be adopted by family members or close friends. 800 of them have nowhere to go. Some children live in as many as 12-15 homes before they turn 18. Youth who do not find permanent families are far more likely to experience drug and alcohol abuse, teen pregnancy, unemployment, and incarceration.These children face the prospect of growing up in foster care, eventually aging out of the system with no supports. They deserve forever homes.
|Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange finds forever families for children in foster care, including sibling groups and children who are traditionally harder to place, by recruiting and supporting families throughout the adoption process.|
