Right now, there are thousands of children and teens in Massachusetts foster care with no permanent family.
We are on a mission to find adoptive families for every single one of them.
All children need and deserve to grow up in a permanent loving family where they know they belong. We believe that there is a family for every waiting child.
All proceeds from our store go directly to finding adoptive homes for kids in foster care. By purchasing our merchandise and apparel, you can help raise awareness in your own community about the need for adoptive families.
Together, we can make a difference for children and teens in foster care.
More About Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange
MARE, a private non-profit agency founded in 1957, provides a unique facilitating role within the Massachusetts adoption community. We are the central clearinghouse for information about adoption from foster care for families. We collaborate with the Massachusetts Department of Children & Families (DCF) and contracted adoption agencies to connect potential adoptive parents with youth waiting for adoption.
MARE develops public awareness and recruitment programs to inform the public about the children who wait, and who can adopt from foster care. We use these programs to attract potential adoptive families and then help them navigate the adoption process. These programs also serve to recruit adoptive families for specific waiting children.
