The Partnership for Families, Children and Adults announced the second annual Foster Parent Recognition and Awards Dinner. The Partnership is recognizing area foster parents by inviting them and their families to a dinner and awards ceremony at Union Hill Baptist Church, located at 1800 N. Chamberlain Ave. from 5:30-8 p.m. on Thursday.
“Foster parents are critical to the community, providing homes for at risk children and teens when they are needed most,” said Jack Parks, Director of Youth Services at the Partnership. “We cannot thank them enough for the service that they provide to these children.”
The Partnership’s Youth Services staff maintain a close relationship with the foster family and provide ongoing support, regular interaction with caseworkers and 24/7 emergency response. Support groups are also available to discuss the various situations and topics that arise with caring for foster children.
