May Honors National Foster Care Appreciation Month

websmoresOne of the most meaningful things you can do in life to help a child is to become a foster parent. The Marsh Foundation celebrated Foster Care Appreciation Month throughout the month of May. The organization is consistently focused on recruiting additional families to help care for the many children in need.

To celebrate foster parents, and show our appreciation, each foster family was presented with a s’more supply kit as well as a restaurant gift card during May. The gift tag read, “We need s’more foster parents like you!”

The Marsh offers a continuum of care that includes a Foster Care Program. Last year, hundreds of children were turned away from our program because of a lack of foster homes. The Marsh believes that all children have the right to love, protection and to be cared for by a committed family.

If you have an interest in becoming a foster parent, please call 419.238.KIDS for more information. Inquiries can also be placed at www.marshfoundation.org/helpkids.

All foster parents receive extensive training. Certified foster parents are required to undergo continuing training to maintain their license.

Foster parents can be married couples or a single individual. Foster parents are substantially reimbursed for costs associated with caring for a foster child. Consultants are assigned to each foster family and are available 24 hours, seven days a week. Consultants help create the youth’s treatment plan, offer support and are available in crisis situations.
