ADOPTION AND FOSTER CARE BY LGBT FAMILIES

The Home for Little Wanderers welcomes lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) couples and individuals, regardless of marital status, to be considered as foster and adoptive parents. We recognize and value the unique strengths that LGBT people bring to the process of parenting. We are aware that historically LGBT adults have not always felt welcome to adopt and foster youth; The Home seeks to eliminate systemic barriers while supporting LGBT people in the process of building families.

When it comes to choosing a social service agency, potential parents have many options and The Home for Little Wanderers is proud that our mission and commitment to improving sensitivity and expertise in working with LGBT families has led to many successful placements over the decades.
