Santa Rosa, CA  –  December 28, 2018  –  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.

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. Dates for 2019 talks are: Jan. 28, Feb. 25, March 25, April 22, May 20, June 24, July 22, Aug. 26, Sept. 23, Oct. 28, Nov. 25 and Dec. 16. For information and to reserve a seat, call (707) 565-4274.

Hear from experienced foster parents and local foster care agencies, including the Sonoma County Human Services Department Family, Youth and Children's Division, TLC Child & Family Services, Alternative Family Services, Lilliput Families and Seneca.

Learn about the different types of foster parents, so you can choose what fits your family:

  • 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.
