Social Services Agency to Explain Its Adoption Process at March 15 Meeting

The Oswego County Department of Social Services will sponsor an informational meeting from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 15 at the department's Spring Street office, Mexico, for people who are interested in adoption. All children available for adoption through the Department of Social Services have been in foster care for a period of time. The children are typically age eight and older and have special needs.

The 10-week pre-certification training program for people who wish to become adoptive or foster parents will be held Thursdays beginning March 22 from 6 to 9 p.m. and will run through May 24. Attendance at the informational meeting is required in order to enroll in the “Model Approach to Partnerships in Parenting - Group Process Selection” training. Single and two-parent families may apply to become foster or adoptive parents. Both parents in a two-parent household must attend the training.
