One of my parishioners is a foster parent for Montgomery County and has brought to our attention a dire need for additional foster parents for local children ages 5+.
Centerville United Methodist is hosting an informational session by a trainer from Montgomery County Children Services on Thursday Sept 22nd at 6:30pm to explain the need, talk about what it means to be a foster parent, who is eligible since there are a lot of incorrect assumptions out there, and have a general Q&A.
In the interests of spreading the word and shining a light to children our community, I’m extending this invitation to the Miami Valley District. I’ve attached a flier for the event. Additionally, the foster mom Summer Bartshe is available at summerbartshe [at] gmail.com to answer any questions, collect RSVPs, and would be willing to come and briefly announce this session at the beginning of services. Please help us by sharing this with your support network.
