Make a difference — be a foster parent!

Make a difference in the life of a child. Become a foster parent.

Have you ever thought about becoming a foster parent? Maybe you know someone who was a foster parent? Perhaps the new kid in your child’s classroom is in foster care?

Maybe you saw an article from Louisiana’s First Lady, Donna Edwards highlighting the need for foster parents in Louisiana? I encounter people all the time who tell me that foster care is something that they have thought about for a while. Well, if this is you, Positive Family Support Systems — a licensed Therapeutic Foster Care agency here in Bogalusa — needs you.

There are more than 4,000 children in foster care in Louisiana. These children need adults committed to loving and nurturing a child in their home, who are willing to work in partnership with everyone involved in the child’s life to meet his/her needs.

Positive Family Support Systems provides prospective foster parents with required trainings for certification, in addition to on-going training and in-home supportive services to ensure long-term successful placement.

Foster parenting may be the most challenging commitment you will ever make, but can be the most rewarding as well. Contact us today at 985-241-5100. We are waiting to hear from you!
