When the calendar flips to August, it means one thing: Back to School! Parents begin shopping for school clothes and new shoes, scavenging for pencils, notebooks, backpacks, calculators and all other things school. At The CALL, we know the heart breaking fact that “back to school” means new children coming into foster care. We know the real need for more foster homes to provide a safe place for these children who must leave all they know, at no fault of their own. We meet with families all year long who are interested in fostering. At this time, we specifically need homes that are willing to accept school age children. Families that have room for more than one child make dreams come true when they accept siblings. As you can imagine, it is a great day when children can stay together with their brothers and sisters.
If your family is open to learning more about foster care, to help provide that future and hope to kids in foster care in Arkansas, please attend an Informational Meeting.
