National Foster Care Month

May is National Foster Care month. Foster parents play an important role in providing stability for children in their transition from their natural parents to a permanent home. Bucks County Children and Youth Social Service Agency oversees the foster care program for the county. The Agency offers informational meetings throughout the county on various dates for interested volunteers. Bucks County presently has a need for additional volunteers. Approximately one-third of the children in need of foster care in Bucks County are placed out of the county due to the shortage of available foster parents.


Foster parents are given training by the county. Additional support includes financial and medical assistance for the foster child. The children benefit from having the option of residing with a foster family instead of being placed in an institution or group home. It is also beneficial to match the foster child with a family of similar cultural and/or ethnic background.
If you would like to request more information on becoming a foster parent, or if you would like to set up an in-home orientation, please email your name, address and phone number to Roxanne Watkins-Hall [email protected] or call 215-348-6997.You can also visit the website at: http://www.buckscounty.org/government/HumanServices/ChildrenandYouth/FosterParent
