Teen in Foster Care Now Has Five Potential Homes

Fortunately, his dedicated caseworker discovered the free family-finding and engagement technology developed by Connect Our Kids. Through our People Search tool, she found many of Marcus’ biologically-related family members and other family friends, including five relative families that are interested in adopting Marcus.

Some of Marcus’ family connections were both surprised and disheartened to hear that he was still in the foster care system after all these years. These people are now a part of Marcus’ life. Because of his caseworker, he has his extended family engaged and they are all interested in his well-being. Marcus no longer has to face the world alone.

Child welfare professionals across the country are using our smart technology tools to make life-changing connections every day.
