January 2021 Informational Meeting @ Zoom

COVID19 has been a challenge for so many, but especially for the foster/adoptive system.  We need foster homes worse than ever.  There has been an increase in children coming into care, our recruitment has changed and our class sizes have decreased as a result.  Please consider signing up at the link below and join us by Zoom for safety.  We will be filling our March Zoom class now and need you.
