Attendance at the informational meeting is required in order to enroll in the 11-week adoptive/foster preparation program. Single and two-parent families may apply to foster or adopt. Both parents in a two-parent household must attend the training.
With dozens of local children and teens in need of love and care, DSS encourages residents to help raise awareness about this critical issue and share this information with interested friends and family members. Residents can start to make a difference in the life of a young person by participating in this valuable program.
