The Pennsylvania Department of Human Services, Office of Children, Youth and Families, Statewide Adoption and Permanency Network (SWAN) and Independent Living Services (IL) will sponsor a Matching Reception on June 21, 2022, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the 2022 SWAN/IL Summer Statewide Meeting, held at Kalahari Resorts and Conventions, 250 Kalahari Blvd., Pocono Manor, PA 18349.

The Matching Reception will begin at 5:30 p.m. with a short program. Following the program, agencies will be asked to staff their tables, and families will be encouraged to visit the displays to learn more about individual children in Pennsylvania who are in need of permanent homes. The Matching Reception is a great way to introduce prospective and approved adoptive families to county caseworkers and affiliate workers conducting child-specific recruitment. It’s a prime opportunity to showcase children directly to families and the agencies who represent them. 

The agency table registration deadline is May 20, 2022. Table space is limited and on a first come, first served basis. Table registrations may be completed online here.

Families are encouraged to pre-register by June 10, 2022. Families interested in attending may register online here OR complete and mail the registration form (below) to: Conferencing, 471 JPL Wick Drive, P.O. Box 4560, Harrisburg, PA 17111.
