Social Services to Explain Agency Adoption Process at Oct. 15 Meeting

The Oswego County Department of Social Services will sponsor an informational meeting from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday, Oct. 15, at the department's Spring Street office, Mexico, for persons who are interested in adoption. All children available for adoption through 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 five-week pre-certification training program for people who wish to become adoptive or foster parents will be held Saturdays beginning Oct. 20 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Classes will run through Nov. 17. 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.
