If you are interested in learning more about becoming a foster parent or adoptive parent, please contact the foster care and adoption unit by calling the supervisor Gwendolyn Goddard at 1-252-789-4460. You may also email

There is a pre-screening required before candidates are selected to attend MAPP classes. The MAPP class is a series of programs designed to prepare you to become excellent foster or adoptive parents for our children. The topics we will cover include: what is foster care and adoption, discipline, child development, gains and losses, and self esteem-just to name a few.

We are asking you to think about individuals or groups who would be interested in a presentation on foster care and adoptions. We would love to speak with church groups/congregations, garden clubs, social groups, ball team mothers, scouts, or any other group of people. We are available anytime- weekdays, evenings, and even on the weekends. Just give us a name and contact information- we will do the rest.
