Santa Rosa, CA – February 3, 2020 – There’s an URGENT NEED for foster parents and adoptive families to open their homes to Sonoma County foster children and teens. Whether you’re single, married, straight or LGBTQ, as a foster parent you can bring healing, safety and stability to a local foster child.
Learn how you can make a difference in a child’s life at Explore Foster Parenting, a one-hour talk on Monday, February 24, 6 p.m., 2255 Challenger Way, Suite 100, Santa Rosa. To reserve a seat, call (707) 565-4274.
Hear from former foster youth, experienced foster parents and local foster care agencies about the different types of foster parents who:
- 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.
Held monthly year-round, additional talks are March 23, April 27, May 18, June 22, July 27, Aug. 24, Sept. 28, Oct. 26, Nov. 23 and Dec. 21.
