Welcome to the MARE Youth Page!

The MARE Youth website is for youth currently in foster care awaiting adoption. We focus on explaining the laws and legal terms associated with being in care, providing resources for youth, and trying to promote a sense of community and belonging. 

We love receiving submissions from youth for our newsletters and website, and if you are interested in sending something please use the Youth Contact Form.

You are not alone

Right now, many children between the ages of 1 to 17 are waiting for their forever families on Are you waiting for your forever family to find you? You are not alone! Submit your story and be featured on the MARE website and in the quarterly youth newsletter.
