Foster homes are currently needed for adolescents and sibling groups where they can identify culturally and ethnically with their caregivers. These children and adolescents also do best when they can be placed in a foster home in their local area, allowing them to stay close to their neighborhoods and continue their education in the same school. Supportive services will be given to foster parents.
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. For additional information or to register for an upcoming foster parent information session, please call Roxanne Watkins-Hall, C&Y foster care recruiter, at 215-348-6997 or visit www.BucksCounty.org.
