It’s Foster Families Appreciation Week (October 15-21), and wow, do we ever appreciate our foster families! The consistent love and compassion that they bring to their work as foster families is truly inspiring. They embrace the unknown with faith and hope, and give children and families a chance to find happiness and fulfillment.
CCASH is in urgent need of new foster families, and has recently broadened its eligibility criteria for foster parents. Fostering is the act of bringing a child into your family and providing them with life necessities as well as emotional support during a difficult and confusing time. There are many different ways to make fostering a part of your life.
In most situations children placed in foster care are reunited with their families, once their parents’ parenting skills have been strengthened with support from CCASH and community partners. In other situations, foster care can open new doors to safety, permanency, and well-being for children whose parents remain unwilling or unable to meet their needs.
