Weekend Family Connections:
Among the youth who wait the longest for adoption are those ten years and older and living in residential care settings. Research shows that these youth are most likely to be adopted by someone who has had the opportunity to get to know them as an individual; however, being in residential care often results in minimal natural networks and community supports.
Weekend Family Connections pairs these youth with host families/individuals who are committed to actively incorporating them into their community and life. The goal of the program is to help those in foster care build connections that will ultimately result in finding an adoptive family, while allowing the youth a positive experience with family life.
