Jewish Family Service of Metrowest is a nonprofit, community-based organization dedicated to Accelerating Social, Academic, and Health Equity. Providing services to over 7,500 people in need within the Metrowest and Greater Boston regions each year, primary focus areas include:

Nutrition and basic needs assistance for struggling families
Programs that support the needs of low-income and first-generation students so they can thrive
Citizenship, immigrant, and resettlement programs
Geriatric care management and other support services that enable vulnerable older adults to live independently

From 1982 through 2020, the JFS Adoption Choices program facilitated matches between adoptive families living in Massachusetts and birth parents and infants from around the world. Specializing in transracial, special needs, and LGBTQ adoption, JFS social workers were instrumental in building over 900 families.

On December 31, 2020, JFS’ adoption program closed, however, JFS continues to maintain the case records for adoptive families, birth parents and adoptees who were clients of the JFS Adoption Choices program.

Requirements to become a foster parent

Your local DCF or foster agency offers various services for foster children and families. Parents have access to training and educational resources as well as support groups.

Foster children also have health insurance covered. The DCF provides foster families with a stipend to cover care needs like food and board. The state also offers a clothing allowance every three months that helps to reimburse parents.

A case worker visits resources families every other month or as needed, and children in foster care are also assigned a social worker. These resources are invaluable points of contact for foster parents.

Local support organizations provide further support, such as resources and helplines. Foster families in Massachusetts also form groups to assist one another, share stories, and give advice. It's an excellent opportunity to create new connections and learn more as a parent.
