Very sadly, there is a huge need right now for foster homes here in Southeastern Massachusetts.  

Community Care Services Intensive Foster care Adoption program is looking for patient, caring home to provide short and long term foster care to children and adolescents.   If you are wondering what would be involved, Tracey Bartholomew with Community Care Services can give you all the information.

But briefly, applicants for the foster parent program are CORI checked and must have a flexible schedule, a spare bedroom and reliable transportation.   Once accepted, foster parents are provided with 24/7 on-call support.   They also receive ongoing training, home based support and daily compensation.   The foster parents also make such a huge and positive difference in the lives of those they assist.   For more information, please call Tracey at (508) 821-7774, or go to
