Have You Ever Thought About Becoming a Foster Parent?

Mass DCF serves children of all ages and from every community - and they all need homes...

From the Mass. Department of Children and Families...

Is there room in your home and heart for a foster child? The Department of Children and Families is actively recruiting foster parents for children in your community coming into foster care. We are searching for individuals or families with the love and patience to help foster children. You can be single, married, partnered, divorced or widowed. You can own your home or rent.

We need homes for children aged 0-22 which include sibling groups, children with special needs, medically involved children, and infants born exposed to drugs and older teens. We are looking for long term foster homes but also have a need for emergency and respite homes.

Our goal is to provide our foster children with a supportive and healing environment in a home in their own community until they can be reunited with their families. The rewards of providing daily care, guidance and acceptance are immeasurable.

If you are thinking about becoming a foster parent, you can learn more about the application process and the supports provided by the Department online at mass.gov/dcf or calling 1-800-KIDS-508.
