Recruit and Support Foster and Adoptive Families

  • Your Community. Your Faith. Their Future.

    We want to raise hope and foster dreams for nearly 13,000 children in foster care and 300 children in Michigan who still need an adoptive family. To ensure that these children are raised in loving, nurturing homes, we are turning to our local organizations, businesses, and faith communities to help us identify and recruit families who will provide these children with an opportunity to succeed.

    You can help these children by:

    • Hosting a forum to learn more about specific ways to help.
    • Spreading the word about the need for foster and adoptive families in your bulletins or websites and during services. Direct your customers or members to www.michigan.gov/HopeForAHome.
    • Sharing your story - If you're doing great things around foster care and adoption, we want to hear about it.
