Cradle Care Families for District of Columbia

Are you looking for a special way to give back to the community? The Barker Adoption Foundation, a private non-profit adoption agency, is currently seeking a DC resident family to join our volunteer Cradle Care Program. Cradle Care families care for babies (0-3 years old) for 20-30 days during the period when a birth parent is making a decision whether to place their child for adoption. We require that one caregiver stays at home with the baby while in the placement. The approval process will include completing a home study with a licensed social worker, at no cost to the family. For additional questions or to submit an application, please email info [at] barkerfoundation.org
