Fostering & Adopting

Resource and adoptive parents are an invaluable resource for Maine's children and communities. OCFS is always in need of loving and supportive foster and adoptive homes for children in State custody. Maine is a geographically large state, and in some regions the number of family foster homes is shrinking. OCFS is dedicated to partnering with loving, caring, and supportive foster and adoptive homes in all Maine communities in order to enhance the safety and wellbeing of children in State custody.
