MARE In Depth Profiles

A project to celebrate Michigan youth in foster care who are sharing their stories with potential adoptive families.
View their In-Depth Profiles

Empowering youth and finding adoptive families.

The Profiles

Youth decide what they want to share and then get to work creating an In-Depth Profile. They are in the driver’s seat from start to finish, so their profiles best represent who they are.

Inspiring Families

Youth create and share through their In-Depth Profiles with the hope that families like you are inspired to step forward and adopt.

Youth Voices

Youth in foster care deserve the opportunity to speak directly to potential adoptive families. In-Depth Profiles exist so their voices are heard.

"I want to feel like I can go to somebody that will actually care and will help me, nourish me, and teach me the things that I need to know."
