Right now, there are at-risk families right in our local area. In many ways, they are just like your family. Parents who want their children to be safe. Parents who desire to have a home that is stable and loving. Children want to come home from school knowing that things will be okay when they get there. However, many of these families are facing such hard circumstances that their children are in the custody of the State.
These families need time, resources, and help with their kids while they work toward making the changes that are needed for their children to return home. We can meet these needs in our area by providing families who will foster children within their own counties and school districts.
Clover Hill has been given the opportunity by Chesterfield’s Department of Social Services to launch a program creating our very own Fostering Network to provide care and support to those who are involved in this initiative. The Network is set up to help foster families succeed.
There are three ways you can be involved in our Fostering Network:
- Be a foster family
- Be a respite family that acts as aunts and uncles to these children
- Be a support mentor which helps with the various needs of foster families.
and this year we have the opportunity to host a Royal Kids Camp for kids from hard places.
With your help, the Clover Hill Fostering Network can be part of the solution. The families right here in our church can make a difference!
If you’re interested in any of the areas above, be sure to join us at our next Foster Network Information Dinner. Contact Angie Grant at AGrant@cloverhillag.org with any questions.
