Oswego: Fostering Futures, an affiliate of the Children’s Home of Jefferson County, will host Foster Parent training classes at the Pulaski Wesleyan Church, 4591 US Route 11, Pulaski, New York. The classes will begin on Tuesday, July 2, 2019, at 6:00 pm and continue for nine additional weeks.
Anyone interested in learning more about Foster Parenting, Adoption, and Respite Services is welcome and encouraged to attend. Light refreshments will be served.
CHJC’s Foster Care Program provides temporary care for children unable to live with their birth families or guardians. The Foster Care Program allows children who may have been abused or neglected, and/or have behavioral challenges and special needs, the opportunity to live in a family setting, attend public school and be an active member of the community.
To provide support for the needs of the entire family, in addition to 24-hour on-call services and crisis response, extensive training is offered to all Foster Parents. Foster Parents will work as a member of a team of families, social workers, and other professionals to help prepare a child to return to his/her birth family or to be adopted.
For more information about Foster Parent training sessions, or on opening your home and heart to these deserving children, please contact Kate Hawn, Multi County Homefinder, at (315) 481-3575 or (315) 777-9665. Or e-mail Kate at firstname.lastname@example.org.
