FosterAdopt Connect Opens Office in Macon to Serve Youth in Foster Care

Organization will offer advocacy services in order to offer support and ensure better outcomes for children and families.

April 18, 2022 (Macon, Mo.) — FosterAdopt Connect, a child services organization committed to serving youth in foster and adoptive care, is opening a new office at 410 N Missouri in Macon, Mo. on Friday, April 22. From this location, they will provide advocacy and other services to foster and adoptive parents and the youth they care for in Macon and the surrounding areas.

FosterAdopt Connect’s advocates listen to, educate, and plan with foster and adoptive parents to help them find answers and solutions needed to give the best possible care to the children in their homes. This new office will not only support existing foster parents, but will make it easier for people in the area to become foster parents who may have been concerned about accessing services or support.

“This new office will serve foster, adoptive, and guardianship families by connecting them with resources such as problem-solving advocacy, kinship navigator services, trainings, and more,” says Justin Wiles, Branch Manager of the new Macon office. “We are so excited to support these amazing families caring for children, and we look forward to building connections with people and organizations in the community who want to be a part of our mission: ending the cycle of childhood abuse and neglect.”

FosterAdopt Connect will be holding a ribbon cutting ceremony on April 22 from 4:00-6:00pm to celebrate the opening. Drinks and Hors D'oeuvres will be served and visitors will get a chance to tour the facility and meet the Macon staff and FosterAdopt Connect executive leadership.
