Guide Upcoming Foster Care/Adoption Informational Meetings

Learn how you can change the life of a child in need by becoming a foster parent with the Department of Children and Families.

Out of an abundance of caution, foster care recruitment staff will not be attending events in the community at this time in an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Staff are hosting virtual  information sessions and we encourage you to attend any information session of interest to you.  

You may attend any Virtual Information Session as it fits with your schedule.

If you would like to speak to a Foster/Adoption Recruitment Social Worker, please call 1-800 543-7508.
