Family and Children’s Services of Frontenac, Lennox and Addington will be answering questions about becoming a Foster Parent live on Facebook beginning at 7pm on Friday, November 30, 2018.

RELEASE — Got questions about becoming a Foster Parent? We’re going to be answering the top ten questions people have about fostering LIVE on Facebook.

Tune in, ask a question of your own, get the answers you need. Just go online to Facebook at Facebook.com/facsfla.

We’re urgently looking for foster homes for teens. Being a foster parent isn’t for everyone. It’s challenging, but there’s no better way to help kids in need than to be their foster parent.

We know you have questions. We have answers. Watch our Livestream or come talk to us.

And even if it is not for you, you can still help. Chances are you know someone who could be a foster parent. Help us help the kids we serve by telling those you know about fostering, and about our need for foster homes. Send them this or drop them a note. You’ll be helping more than you think.

We’re looking for very special people. Becoming a foster parent is hard work. There’s mandatory training and a variety of checks. It will take time and commitment. We’ll support you on your journey. Just like you will be welcoming a foster child into your family we’ll be welcoming you into our family.

We believe in diversity. The kids we serve come from a variety of backgrounds, cultures, creeds and orientations. That’s why we are looking for diversity in the foster parents we recruit. We need foster parents who are committed to helping kids better their lives and find their futures.

The kids we serve are all different. We have a significant number of teens that need foster homes. They’ll need your guidance and experience as they begin the transition from childhood to becoming young adults. All of the kids we serve are more than the sum of the challenges they have faced. With your help they will be able to be all they can be.
