Domestic Violence Awareness Month

For the 7th year, OCFS is joining together with the New York State Office for the Prevention of Domestic Violence (OPDV) to help turn the State purple during October to raise awareness of domestic violence and the many resources available in New York to help victims and their children. 

Also, OCFS is again participating in the Verizon Wireless HopeLine® Program to benefit victims of domestic violence.

If you have no-longer-used cell phones or pagers, please look for one of the HopeLine® donation boxes in the Home Office Buildings and the SCR.

National Adoption Month

November is “Adoption Awareness Month” to encourage families to consider adopting foster children who are waiting for a permanent home. It is also a good opportunity to focus attention on the important role the New York State Office of Children and Family Services plays in the adoption process.

Adoptions are processed through local departments of social services (counties or the Administration for Children’s Services (ACS) in NYC and authorized voluntary agencies but the state Office of Children and Family Services provides valuable resources to support adoptions from foster care within our state and beyond. Each OCFS regional office has an Adoption Specialist on staff to provide assistance in that part of the state.

Contact NYS Adoption Service 1-800-345-KIDS(5437) for more information.
