MARE Story Time
Wednesday, August 1
Come join the Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange (MARE) for a live book reading at the Province Town Library. Children of all ages and families are invited to listen and learn about the different types of families that make up our community as we read a story together. MARE staff and experienced adoptive families will be present to answer questions and provide information about adoption from foster care, in Massachusetts, following the reading. Light refreshments will be provided during and after the event. Have you ever thought about adopting or perhaps you’re ready to expand your family? You won’t want to miss this fun and informative event.
More about MARE: 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.
