FAMILY FOSTER CARE & FOSTER-ADOPTION INFO MEETING
November is National Adoption Awareness Month!
(Santa Clarita, CA) November is recognized as National Adoption Awareness Month. While all adoptionâ€“related issues are important, the particular focus of this month is the adoption of children currently in foster care. Every child deserves to have a safe, loving and permanent family. There are children currently in foster care who are unable to return to their families of origin. Childrenâ€™s Bureau encourages caring families to consider foster- adopting these children. Childrenâ€™s Bureau also invites individuals and couples to become Resource Families to care specifically for children during the reunification process with their parents. Families who have the willingness, ability and resources to care for teenagers, older children and sibling sets are also invited. The monthly information meeting for those interested in learning more is on Saturday, Nov. 5th, from 10:00 a.m. â€“ Noon at the Dianne G. Van Hook University Center, Room 222, College of the Canyons, 26455 Rockwell Canyon Road, Santa Clarita, CA 91355.
Childrenâ€™s Bureau encourages individuals (single or married), who are interested in helping children find the love, stability and support a family can provide, to contact Childrenâ€™s Bureau. Qualifying families receive training, certification and support. For more information, call (661) 208-4212, (661) 272-9996 or visit the website www.all4kids.org
Childrenâ€™s Bureau, established in 1904 to protect children, began providing adoption services in the 1940â€™s in response to the increased need of finding homes for World War II refuge children and war orphans. Today, we help 500 at-risk children in caring foster homes and finalize over 100 adoptions each year. For 110 years, Children’s Bureau has been a nonprofit leader in the prevention and treatment of child abuse and neglect. More than 28,000 children and families are helped each year throughout Southern California with services that include school readiness, parenting classes, family resource centers, support groups, mental health counseling, foster care, foster-adoption and more.
