  • Pre-Adoptive Support Group

    The Department of Children and Families (DCF) Northern Region Pre-Adoptive Support Group is for approved adoptive families who are either waiting to be identified as a permanent resource for a child/children in the care of the Department, or for families that have been identified as a resource for a child/children and are in the process of transitioning the child/children into their home. The group is co-sponsored by The Department of Children and Families and The Kids’ Net Program, through The Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (MSPCC).
