December 2013Vol. 14, No. 9Spanish-Language State Directory

In its work to provide information about the need for foster and adoptive families in the United States and to connect potential foster and adoptive families with children in need of permanent homes, the National Resource Center for Diligent Recruitment (NRCDR) at AdoptUSKids hosts a Spanish-language website to help recruit Spanish-speaking adoptive and foster families. The website features resources that provide introductory information on who can adopt, how to adopt, and how to become a foster parent. It is also a rich source for resources to help children and families after an adoptive or foster care placement.

The NRCDR at AdoptUSKids recently added a new and useful tool to the website: a Spanish-language directory of State resources for foster care and adoption information. The directory includes a map where customers can click on a State and find contact information to learn how to become licensed foster or adoptive parents, requisites for adopting a child in their own jurisdiction or in another jurisdiction, and more. This tool is available in both English and Spanish, as are all of the resources on the Spanish-language website.

To explore the map and accompanying resources, visit the Información por estado sobre crianza temporal y adopción webpage on the NRCDR at AdoptUSKids website:
