Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange
MARE finds "a permanent place to call home" for children in foster care, including sibling groups and children who are traditionally harder to place. We do this by recruiting and supporting families throughout the adoption process, while targeting recruitment efforts to find families for specific children. So far, MARE has helped over 6,300 children join their "forever families."

The TAC is a nationally recognized program developed by the Center for Adoption Support and
Education (C.A.S.E.). It is jointly sponsored here in Massachusetts by the Massachusetts Adoption Resource
