November is National Adoption Month

Each year, November is recognized as National Adoption Awareness Month. While all adoption-related issues are important, the particular focus of this month is the adoption of children currently in foster care. In Pennsylvania, there are currently more than 2,500 children waiting for adoption.

Every child deserves a sense of stability and a safe place to call home, so join CONCERN and learn more about the joys and rewards of becoming an adoptive or a foster parent.

Founded in 1978, CONCERN a multi-service private non-profit 501(c)3 human services organization dedicated to providing placement and treatment services to children and their families providing a growing array of foster care, adoption and permanency, community-based, residential and behavioral health services. More than 15,000 children and youth have been placed into CONCERN’s care.

A pioneer of treatment foster care, CONCERN believes that children placed in foster care should live in a traditional family setting in the community, rather than in a residential or institutional setting.
