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

Children right here in Bucks County need your help, including those in foster care. You can make a difference in the life of a child by becoming a foster parent. Foster homes are currently needed for teenagers and sibling groups where they can identify culturally and ethnically with their caregivers.  These children also 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. Supportive services will be given to foster parents.

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 in February:
