US kids for adoption find mentors and families
For them it’s much more than just a weekend.
Weekend Miracles is a new way of helping older kids in foster care in the US. Because older kids “in the system” are hidden from view, they rarely meet people interested in helping them.
Through Weekend visits with host families people have a chance to get to know US children for adoption and introduce them to friends, family and associates. Our goal is to connect children in foster care with caring adults, ideally through adoption or as mentors.
If you are interested in hosting US kids for adoption for weekend visits please contact Nancy, Weekend Miracles Program Recruiter, at email@example.com
Host families for children in foster care help kids, ages 9-18 years old, in Los Angeles County California foster care. Hosts are required to spend at least two days (or two weekends) a month with the child. They have the child as a guest in their home. The goal of a host is to get to know the child and help other adults meet the child so that the child can find an adoptive family or committed mentor. We want every child in California foster care to be able to say “I was in foster care”.

Volunteers for Weekend Miracles can be host families, mentors or advocates for children. We also need people to help recruit host families among every demographic group — Caucasian families, families of color and families who will support gay, lesbian and transgender youth. Gay families are welcome. Together we recruit people to manage events each weekend so the kids can meet people interested in adopting and mentoring them. We partner with community organizations to host weekend events for kids — churches, synagogues, civic groups. If you have PR skills, website development, photography or social work expertise we can use you, too.
