Become a Bucks County Foster Parent: Children and Youth Agency to Host Information Sessions

Become a Bucks County Foster Parent
Children and Youth Agency to Host Information Sessions

We often don’t realize that children right here in Bucks County need your help, including those in foster care. You can make a huge difference in the life of a child by becoming a foster parent. These children do best when they can be placed in a foster home in their local area, which allows them to stay close to their neighborhood and continue their education at the same school.

The Bucks County Children and Youth Social Services Agency will be hosting evening information sessions for anyone interested in becoming a foster parent or learning more about how to help or volunteer. Registration is welcomed but not necessary for the following sessions:

Levittown Library, 7311 New Falls Road, Levittown, 19055

The Bucks County Children & Youth Social Services Agency provides foster care for children whose families are unable to care for them, and child protection services to children and their families. Foster homes are needed where children can identify culturally and ethnically with their caregivers.
