Friday, October 19, 2012News Release
Youthville is hosting an information meeting for the public to learn about becoming a foster parent. There is a high need for foster parents able to care for children of all ages, but especially those who are ages 5-18, sibling sets of three or more and medically fragile and developmentally disabled.
Youthville cares for more than 1,100 children in the state of Kansas who need shelter, food, clothing, medical care, nurturing and positive discipline. In many instances, foster parents provide care when children most need it. It is easier to become an adult if you've had a childhood and Youthville foster parents truly make a difference in the lives of children.
Attendees will learn what is needed to make a difference in the life of a child, including regulations, licensing requirements and benefits. They will also learn about adoption from foster care.
When: Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2012

Time: 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
