Meeting Next Thursday for those Considering Fostering or Adopting

Family Builders of Catawba Valley invites those interested in fostering or adopting a child to attend the resource family information meeting from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. next Tuesday (June 10). The meeting will be held at the Family Services Center, 3050 11th Avenue Drive S.E. in Hickory (behind the Catawba Valley Medical Center).

There is currently an urgent need for foster parents and therapeutic foster parents, especially those who can accept sibling groups.

Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month to help raise awareness of the great need for foster homes for Catawba County’s waiting children. Those attending the meetings are invited to ask questions and learn more about ways they can help Catawba County children in foster care.

Resource families include family foster homes, therapeutic foster homes and adoptive homes. Specific information about becoming a resource family will be available at the meeting. Guests will also learn about required training for resource families and hear stories about the rewards of helping children in foster care.

For more information about the meeting or to schedule an individual appointment to discuss becoming a resource family, contact Sharon Hamby at Family Builders of Catawba Valley at 828-695-4553 or email shamby@catawbacountync.gov.
