FAIRBORN — Greene County Children Services is holding a free information session on its foster care program from 6-7 p.m. Wednesday, July 16 at the Fairborn Library.
The agency is specifically in need of foster parents for older children and teens as well as sibling groups.
“We have a wonderful group of foster parents willing to care for infants, toddlers and children in grade school,” said Monica Schiffler, Public Relations Specialist for Greene County Children Services. “Many of the children who come into our care, however, are in junior high and high school. We need foster parents who are willing to welcome these older children into their homes. We also need foster parents willing to care for multiple children because we try not to break up sibling groups when placing children in foster homes.”
The agency’s need for adoptive parents and kinship care providers will also be discussed during the information session.
The Fairborn Library is located at 1 E. Main St. Pre-registration is appreciated but not required. To register or for more information, please contact Jana at 937-562-6641 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
