Alexandria County Foster Care Information Meeting
Time & Location
About the Event
Did you know that there are children and teens in your community who need foster parents? They could even be the child sitting next to your own child at school or playing on the soccer team with your 13-year-old, or singing along with your toddler at preschool.
Children and youth in foster care are frequently separated not only from their families, but also from their friends, schools and communities. By becoming a foster parent, you, your neighbors and other community members make it possible for a child to stay in the same school and participate in other regular activities such as sports, church, scouts, and other activities.
Successful foster parents have two things in common: they have a desire to help children, and they can adapt to challenging circumstances. Most importantly, foster families are willing to provide a safe, stable and caring home for children and teens.
If you are interested in learning more about becoming a resource for Foster Care, attend an information session.
