New adoption and foster care recruitment photos and videos available

One of the best ways to inspire others to foster and adopt is to share real-life stories of individuals who they can relate to.

Twice a year, the Office of Children, Youth and Families (OCYF) develops new videos, photos and social media content that are available to counties and child placement agencies in support of their recruitment and retention efforts.

The Following New Resources Are Now Available

OCYF agrees to use each family’s photos and videos for two years only. Please discontinue the use of images and videos featuring these families: Barnett, Carlson, Fernandez-Martinez, Hunt and Smolleck.

Contact Mary Gerlach to request replacement content. Counties and CPA that certified families featured on OCYF materials are encouraged to contact the family and request permission to continue to use the family’s image.
