The packet and checklist below include the instructions and forms needed for your application to Wide Horizons For Children (WHFC). Please submit these materials together.
Once we review your application, you will be assigned a social worker and begin the home study process. At that time we will ask you to gather the documents needed for your home study (WHFC Application Packet B).
We look forward to working with you, and are here to help you every step of the way! If you have questions about the application process, please contact our Applications Coordinator at 781-894-5330.
You may find it easier to print this checklist and use it as you complete the necessary paperwork.
