Become a Foster or Adoptive Parent

Cambridge Family and Children's Service believes that every child should be raised in a loving family. When possible, a child will be reunited with his or her birth parents, but when a reunion is not in the best interest of the child's welfare, our goal is to find a new family that will provide the child with a stable, supportive, and loving environment.

Our Intensive Foster Care program finds temporary families and our Adoption program finds permanent families for children in the custody of the state.

In each case, CFCS provides planning and case management, required trainings, and support services for families involved in these programs.
