May is National Foster Care Month, a month set aside to acknowledge foster parents, family members, volunteers, mentors, policymakers, child welfare professionals, and other members of the community who help children and youth in foster care find permanent homes and connections.
OFCA would like to take this time to send a huge shout out of appreciation to families caring for Ohio’s most vulnerable youth, teenagers and families at risk. Please join us and others as we celebrate foster parents and join in the theme for theme for 2017, “Empowering Caregivers, Strengthening Families.”
