With 415,000 children in the US foster care system, RaiseAChild is partnering with The Pride Center of Vermont and the Vermont Department of Children and Families to place children with loving parents.

Working to champion RaiseAChild’s core value of “love defines family®,” partnering agencies will support RaiseAChild in streamlining the foster/adoption process for LGBTQ+ parents. RaiseAChild holds that children deserve safe, loving, and permanent homes and all prospective foster/adopt parents deserve encouragement and support throughout the family building process.

For an exclusive presentation and orientation about options for adoption and fostering, please register for the up coming online info session June 23rd 2022 at 6:00pm-7:30pm here: https://secure.lglforms.com/form_engine/s/GSaBVnQqKySamJzEGicJHQ
