Due to concerns regarding the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Foster Parenting Informational Sessions originally scheduled for March 25, 2020 in Massena, New York, and March 26, 2020 in Canton, New York, have been postponed until further notice. Fostering Futures of St. Lawrence County will reschedule these sessions at a later date.
Fostering Futures provides temporary care for children unable to live with their birth families or guardians. It allows children who may have been abused or neglected, and/or have behavioral challenges and special needs, the opportunity to live in a family setting, attend public school and be an active member of the community. To provide support for the needs of the entire family, in addition to 24-hour on-call services and crisis response, extensive training is offered to all Foster Parents. They will work as a member of a team of families, social workers, and other professionals to help prepare a child to return to his/her birth family, or to be adopted.
For more information on opening your home and heart to these deserving children, please contact Malissa Hale at (315) 229-3503. Or e-mail Malissa at [email protected].
