Outreach and Support Coordinator for Black & Latino Families
Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange
MARE recognizes that systemic racism in the United States has resulted in over-representation of children of color in the foster care system, longer waits for their permanent placement in loving adoptive homes, and higher rates of aging out of foster care without permanency. Among other things, systemic racism has led to higher rates of state removal of children from their biological families, barriers to entry into the adoption process for families of color, and an understandable lack of trust within communities of color toward state child welfare agencies. We are reexamining our role, reprioritizing our work, and exploring ways to close the permanency gap and to increase the rate of families of color who are licensed for adoption in Massachusetts.

If you are an advocate who is passionate about finding adoptive families of color for children and youth in foster care, if you are connected to faith-based, cultural, and grass roots organizations in Black and Latino communities, if you love working with families and helping them to navigate systems, and if you are a creative thinker who wants to try new ideas and engage in finding solutions for challenging problems, then this position might be for you!

The Outreach and Support Coordinator for Black & Latino Families is responsible for implementing new and existing initiatives focused on improving the permanency outcomes of waiting youth of color and increasing the number of Black and Latino families beginning the process of adoption. This person will build, nurture and sustain long-term partnerships with individuals and organizations, including but not limited to cultural hubs, places of worship, community leaders and funders, in order to address the specific needs and challenges faced by Black and Latino families considering adoption.

Community Engagement Specialist
Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange
Are you a great communicator who loves rallying others to a cause? Are you an organizational wizard who has no problem keeping up with multiple projects, emails, and deadlines? Do you want to change lives by helping kids in foster care find adoptive homes? This position might be for you!

The Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange (MARE) finds adoptive homes for children and teens waiting in foster care. A private non-profit agency founded in 1957, MARE develops public awareness and recruitment programs to inform the public about the children who wait, and the process of adoption from foster care. These programs are used to attract and support potential adoptive families and match them with specific waiting children.

The Community Engagement Coordinator facilitates the connection between MARE and our community. It’s your role to give voice to MARE’s mission in simple, compelling ways and engage our community in that mission. You’ll be a part of a small dynamic communications team where you will wear several different hats: copywriting, storytelling, social media management, volunteer engagement, and public relations.

This position requires a bachelor’s degree and 2-4 years' experience in administration, event planning, volunteer coordination, and/or professional writing. This position requires excellent communication, multi-tasking, and detail management. The ideal candidate for this role is able to effectively mobilize others, coordinate multiple projects simultaneously, and write clearly and compellingly for multiple contexts. Demonstrated resourcefulness and the ability to work collaboratively with a team are essential, as is the ability to work independently. Knowledge of basic office productivity applications, facility with social media tools, and willingness to learn new systems is required.
