Virtual Matching Event Hosted by ACLC: Adoption Coalition of Lancaster County

WHEN: Wednesday, April 28, 2021

TIME: Noon to 1:30PM (EST)

Caseworkers should contact Jaelyn Roche (jroche@bethanna.org) to register to present a waiting child and a family. Approved, adoptive families are invited to join the event and must register through their agency caseworker.
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.
