Find Out if You'd Make a Great Foster Parent

Santa Rosa, CA  –  June 18, 2019  –  Every day, 50-75 Sonoma County children and teens need a safe place to live in our community. There’s an URGENT NEED for foster parents and adoptive families to open their homes to local foster children and give them a place they can feel safe, wanted and loved.

You can:

  • Provide a temporary home as an emergency foster parent or foster parent,
  • Foster parent a child with the potential of adoption, or
  • Rent out a room and act as a mentor to an older foster youth going to school or working.

Learn about whether foster parenting is right for you at Explore Foster Parenting, a one-hour discussion held monthly, 6-7 p.m., at 2255 Challenger Way, Suite 100, Santa Rosa.
