Sept. 18: Foster Parenting: Are you called?
At any given time, approximately 5,000 children are in foster care homes throughout Colorado. On a daily basis, Catholic Charities receives calls from the Department of Human Services to inquire whether or not we have any openings for children in need of foster homes.
These children are vulnerable and hurting. Through no fault of their own, they are without a permanent home - and without a family.
They need safe, loving families to come forward and provide them with a home.
Foster placement may only be needed for a short time - or the child may eventually become legally free for permanent adoption.
Either way, foster care is an opportunity to offer HOPE to a wounded child in their moment of need.
We know that deciding to become a foster parent can be a difficult decision. We have no illusions regarding the unique challenges that accompany this decision. However, we firmly believe that with any great sacrifice comes even greater rewards!
We understand you have questions. We're ready to answer them.
Please join us for one of our upcoming "Foster Care Information Nights" (our current schedule is offered below). These sessions are casual, no-pressure opportunities to learn firsthand about the joys and challenges associated with becoming a foster parent.
At Catholic Charities, we have been training foster families for decades. We offer numerous support services to help our foster families successfully embrace this heroic ministry. We are here to help by coaching and supporting every foster parent, every step of the way.
