Adoption Fund Taking Applications Until Nov. 1

The Jim Carr Memorial Fund for Adoption is accepting applications from families looking for help with the costs of adopting a child. We expect to make one award of $1,000 in 2010.

Applicants must live in Douglas County and submit a home study compiled by a specially licensed social worker with their application. Both domestic and international adoptions will be considered, as will private adoptions. Single parents are eligible, but completed adoptions won’t be considered.

The award will cover $1,000 of verifiable adoption costs including the agency fee, country fee and orphanage donation.

The deadline is Nov. 1. For more information or application materials, visit our website, or contact me at 843-8727 or
