Buncombe County seeks foster parents

Here’s the message via the Buncombe County website:

May is National Foster Care Month, a time to recognize the need for more foster care homes and the important role Foster Care parents play the lives of children and youth.

Right now, Buncombe County has 291 children in custody, with only Foster Care flyer.90 foster homes available. Consider becoming a foster parent – you can change a child’s future.

Keeping youth connected to their families, friends, and community is vital to their overall health and well-being and helps to minimize trauma. Having a permanent connection to at least one or more supportive adult, such as a mentor, coach, teacher, or family friend, helps youth build self-esteem and develop social skills and relationships.

For more information on becoming a foster parent, call Buncombe County (828) 250-5868
or familiesforkids@buncombecounty.org.
