These are the steps of our MAP Registration Sequence. If for any reason you need to leave during this sequence, we will save your place so you can come back to the part you were on.
Part I: The video Overview:
Watch the Matching Assistance Program (MAP) overview video to see why MAP is an important way to market your family and to learn about some of the tools provided to MAP Families.
Part II: The MAP Overview Slideshow
Go through the Map Overview Slideshow for another look at why MAP is an important way to market your family and to learn about some of the tools provided to Map Families.
Part III: The Registration Page
Fill out the MAP Registration Page with as much information as possible. Use complete sentences in all text areas. The more you write on this page, the easier it will be to fill out you profile. Much of this information will automatically be used to create a basic profile which you will edit later. Double check all the information on this page before you move on.
Part IV: Family Profile Video
Watch the Family Profile Video for information about creating you Family Profile and obtaining a Home Study.
Part V: Profile Overview Slideshow
Go through the Profile Overview Slideshow for more information about how we can use your Family Profile, as well as why it is important that it is filled out completely. Make sure to read each slide so you know what to do so we are able to use your profile.
Part VI: The Profile Page
This is where you get to create your profile. Make sure that all information is in complete sentences and that gramatically it makes sense. Much of it has been filled out already from the Registration page in Part III, however it is extremely important that you review all the information and edit as needed. Remember, this is where you get to make your family shine.
Part VII: The Home Study Page
Select the option on this page that matches your Home Study situation to let us know where you are at in the Home Study process.
Unactivated MAP Home Page
From the MAP Home Page you can edit your Family Profile, upload and add pictures to your Family Profile, view and edit your Registration information, request or upload your Home Study, review the tutorial videos and slideshows, update your account information and more. Once we have recieved your Home Study you can Request MAP Membership Activation. Once this request is processed you will be able to use all the tools that come with being a MAP family.
Request MAP Activation once we have your Home Study by selecting the Blue Button in the center of the MAP Home Page
Activated MAP Family Home Page
Once your family has been activated as a MAP Family you will be able to search for and submit on children on our site, as well as view suggested matches with children who match the preferences you gave on your registration form. You will also be able to view children who have been given an urgent placement status and you will be able to post on and view the family forum. You will also be able to mark children as favorites so you can come right back to the them later.
