Ways to get Involved

Suggestions on ways you, your family, or your faith-based or community-based organization can help promote adoption for children in foster care:

  • Email your family, friends, neighbors, coworkers and employees to invite them to sign up to receive the monthly Explore Adoption e-newsletter.
  • Hang posters featuring a child available for adoption in your buildings, lobbies, cafeterias, lounges, and other areas visible to both employees and the public. Find materials.
  • Host a public adoption orientation meeting for your friends, family, members or employees in cooperation with your local community based care provider. Find your local adoption recruiter.
  • If your organization provides a financial stipend or parental leave to employees who adopt, promote awareness of these benefits and refer interested employees to Explore Adoption.
  • Make Explore Adoption brochures available to everyone. Download materials.
  • Post a link on your Web page to the Explore Adoption website, www.adoptflorida.org, and follow @ExploreAdoption on Twitter.
  • Sponsor or provide in-kind and/or monetary donations to extend the reach of Florida´s Explore Adoption initiative.
  • Use your internal newsletters, newspapers, magazines or other publications to promote awareness of public adoption by featuring a child or sibling group available for adoption, running an article about the Explore Adoption initiative and/or regularly featuring the Explore Adoption logo, 1-800-96-ADOPT and www.adoptflorida.org.
  • Encourage members to volunteer with your local Heart Gallery.
  • Host your local Heart Gallery´s Exhibit in your building, gallery, lobby, or office. Find a heart gallery near you!
