Deirdre -Community Outreach Manager



Community Outreach and Development Manager

Poultney, Rutland County, VT

New York Capital Region and New England

Deirdre’s role with the agency involves nurturing collaborative relationships with healthcare professionals and social service providers. She travels around the Northeast visiting different hospitals, OB/GYN offices, Planned Parenthood centers, pregnancy resource centers, healthcare offices and community centers. She meets with various social workers, case managers, nurse managers, office managers and providers and shares information about Friends in Adoption (FIA). In these meetings they discuss the compassionate services FIA has to offer those considering making an adoption plan for their child(ren), as well as FIA’s mission and philosophy. Something emphasized in these visits is FIA’s commitment to empowering individuals in the community to make informed decisions. The goal is to ensure professionals have a thorough understanding of Friends in Adoption and the service we have to offer, as well as that FIA is indeed an ethical, reliable agency here to empower the community. This way, individuals who need our services will be able to access them.
