New Program Underway to Attract New Foster Parents
Kennewick -- It's National Foster Care month. And there is a problem for those who work in the system. There are too many kids, and too few foster parents.
It is hoped that a new program, called "You Can Too" will make a difference. It's a marketing program taken on by the Department of Social and Health Services to attract people as foster parents. It includes flyers, door hangers, and appearances at community events. The goal is to increase awareness, find foster parents, and keep kids in trouble close to home.
