Foster and Adoptive Recruitment Videos Available

Real-life stories of children, youth and families can help child welfare workers, managers, training staff and others engage audiences in a variety of settings. From training to recruitment, these inspiring stories are great tools for gaining perspective and highlighting the role each of us has in enhancing the lives of children and youth.

Twice a year, CDHS develops videos that feature foster, adoptive and kinship families. These videos are available to counties and child placement agencies to support your recruitment, retention and training efforts.  View the videos here.

Please email Mary Gerlach,, if you would like to embed the videos on your website or use the videos in a training.

And, help us tell more stories and recruit more families. Nominate a foster family to be recognized during CDHS’s celebration of National Adoption Month in May 2017. Complete the online form here. The deadline is February 28, 2017.
