Want to be a foster parent?
Get information Aug. 26

      An informational meeting for individuals interested in becoming a foster or adoptive parent will be held from 6-7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 26, at Henrietta G. Lewis Campus School, 6395 Old Niagara Rd., Lockport.
      Call Laurie Grimm, Family Resource/Intake Coordinator, at 834-9413, ext. 204 to RSVP by Aug. 24.
      A diverse group of people to be certified for therapeutic foster care and adoption is needed. Foster parents are sometimes lost when they decide to adopt, so there is always a need for new recruits.
      •  You can be married or single.
      •  You must be at least 21, but there is no maximum age.
      •  You don’t have to be rich.  Financial and medical support to meet the needs of the child is provided.
      •  You will receive training and support.
