Matching Events

SWAN matching events are focused on helping Pennsylvania’s waiting children achieve permanency. There are various events with specific purposes:

  • Adoption Awareness events emphasize the need for and importance of adopting older waiting children.
  • Matching Events bring together many child welfare agencies and families.  Children typically are not present, but they may participate in a limited capacity.
  • Matching Parties bring together families and children, usually teenagers, to interact through planned activities.

These events can be sponsored by different groups, including private adoption agencies and county children and youth offices in Pennsylvania, and there are two major events sponsored by the SWAN prime contract, Diakon Social Ministries in partnership with Family Design Resources.
