Register a Family

We encourage families from Massachusetts to register with MARE immediately after their homestudy is complete. Social workers can register waiting families from Massachusetts who have completed and approved homestudies to adopt from foster care. Click here for our Family Registration Form. The families’ criteria will be compared with the needs of the children registered with MARE. If a potential match is identified, MARE will forward the family’s homestudy to the child’s social worker. Follow-up on such referrals is done by the child’s social worker.  The family’s social worker is notified of any potential matches, as well. 

All families are encouraged to utilize MARE's Online Photolisting and the Online Matching Program.
Families with completed and approved homestudies are encouraged to partner with their social worker to create a Family Profile that can be shared with social workers at MARE events such as Single Parent Matching Nights and Adoption Parties.

See Registering a Family for more details.
