Washington County is Looking for Foster/Adoptive/Respite Families
In recognition of National Adoption Month and the ongoing need to recruit foster parents, the Washington County Department of Social Services is hosting an open informational session.
All interested individuals over the age of 21, can learn more about the rewarding experience of fostering, adopting or respite. Foster Care Recruitment Staff will be available to answer your questions and provide insight on the process of becoming certified foster and adoptive parents.
We believe in the “One Child, One Home” approach so that parents can focus their energy on one child or one sibling group. We provide direct support of foster and adoptive homes by working in conjunction with parents and community resources, including schools and providers.
Can’t commit to fostering full time? How about short-term respite to provide support to a foster parent and become another positive connection for a child?
All are welcome to attend either open informational session at:
Washington County Municipal Center
383 Broadway, Building B
Fort Edward, NY 12828
November 17, 2022 between 12 pm to 2 pm - or - 4 pm to 6 pm in Training Rooms 1 and 2 on the Basement Level of the Building
(it is not necessary to arrive by 12pm or 4 pm nor is it necessary to stay for the full 2 hours)
Refreshments will be served and there will be prize giveaways. For additional information, questions, or local media interviews, please contact any of the people listed, above
