May is National Foster Care Month!

May is National Foster Care Month, a time to recognize the invaluable contributions of families who foster and the role that each of us can play in enhancing the lives of children in care.

This year’s theme is Foster Care as a Support for Families, Not a Substitute for Parents. On the 2020 National Foster Care Month website, you will find:

  • Resources to help you spread the word about the need for foster families
  • Inspiring stories and videos
  • Information about how to support reunification efforts
  • And more!
