About the Project

We have run a very small FAS program for 4 years and we struggle with how to scale it, with little staff time as possible. The program teaches volunteers how to be a search specialist for families in the matching phase, it is very successful. However, we need to create a way to scale it and make it work having a part time staff member manage it.

As a Family Adoption Specialist our volunteers represent A Family For Every Child while working with families through the adoption process.
Explore what we have done with our FAS program
Create a plan and budget to support its growth

Working with MAP Additional services by checking in with families weekly, assisting them with the matching phase, following up with Social workers, and ensuring that their process is at an appropriate pace (all training provided).

Because this is a very select role, with a large commitment on both parts, we will be interviewing for the right person.
