Wendy’s Wonderful KidsWendy's

The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption is a non-profit public charity dedicated to dramatically increasing the adoptions of the more than 140,000 children in North America’s foster care systems. Wendy's Wonderful Kids is a signature program of the Foundation.

Wendy’s Wonderful Kids recruiters employ a child-focused recruitment strategy which involves case records review, regular meetings with children, assessment, adoption preparation, network building and the creation of recruitment plans for finding families for children who are waiting in foster care to be adopted.

MARE is a proud recipient of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption grants for two Wendy’s Wonderful Kids recruiters, one serving Western Massachusetts and one serving the greater Boston area.  Contact the following MARE staff for information on referring a child or sibling group to the program:
