If you have ever considered the idea of foster parenting or adopting a child, an upcoming meeting can give you some specifics about the process. The Children’s Bureau invites individuals and couples to become Resource Families to care specifically for children during the reunification process with their parents. There are also children currently in foster care who are unable to return to their families of origin. Children’s Bureau encourages caring families to consider foster-adopting these children. Families who have the willingness, ability and resources to care for teenagers, older children and sibling sets are also invited. The monthly information meeting for those interested in learning more is on Saturday, November 22, 2014 from 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. at the Westfield Valencia Town Center Community Room (Level 1 by LOFT), 24201 W. Valencia Boulevard in Valencia.
Children’s Bureau encourages individuals (single or married), who are interested in helping children find the love, stability and support a family can provide, to contact Children’s Bureau. Qualifying families receive training, certification and support. For more information, call (661) 208-4212 or visit the website www.all4kids.org. An information packet or application may be requested by filling out a request form on the website, if desired. An application may also be printed directly from the website.
