Ankeny: Overview Session

Ankeny: Overview Session

                           Do you have some extra room in your home AND heart?

                                                   Consider becoming a foster parent for Iowa's children! 

                         

                         We are looking for families who can care for larger sibling groups and school aged children who need safe foster homes!

  Youth enter foster care through no fault of their own and need a caring, stable family for temporary care, a few days to several months, or for the purpose of permanency through guardianship or adoption. 

                      Foster parents can be a single person or a partnered or married couple and come from diverse and varied backgrounds.

   If you want to help but aren’t ready to become a foster parent, you can make a difference by referring someone you know who would be a great foster/adoptive family or by volunteering to help us get the word out about Four Oaks Fostering Connections.

             Please plan to attend and hear more about how you can help your community support children & families in the child welfare system.
