"Where the Community Connects"

Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange (MARE)


MAREĀ finds "a permanent place to callĀ home" for children in foster care, including sibling groups and children who are traditionally harder to place. They do this by recruiting and supporting families throughout the adoption process, while targeting recruitment efforts to find families for specific children. So far, MARE has helped over 6,300 children join their "forever families."
