Upcoming Events
The Adoption Center is hosting a Virtual Matching Event

WHEN: Saturday June 6, 2020

TIME: 2:00pm -4:00 pm

Join us for a virtual, interactive afternoon of fun where prospective adoptive families and youth workers can connect with one another online. Only families with an approved home study/ family profile are eligible to attend. Workers are encouraged to sign up youth ages 12 and up.

Family registration is available at bit.ly/VirtualME2020.

Workers should register by emailing Naomi Goldberg at pateen@adopt.org. (Priority Registration will be given for Western, PA Youth Workers)

Not sure if this event is right for you? Please contact Naomi Goldberg at pateen@adopt.org for additional information.

Consider adopting older youth. In Pennsylvania, youth can remain in foster care until the age of 21. Many of the matching events listed on this page provide families with opportunities to meet older youth in care who are in need of permanency. Even though many of these youth are on their way to young adulthood, they continue to need permanent connections and a family to support, love and care for them. To learn more about this group of older youth please visit the Waiting Children section, and use the Search Kids tool and search by age range 17 to 21.
