- Virtual Info Session
ESSEX, CLINTON, FRANKLIN AND ST. LAWRENCE COUNTIES: Virtual Info Sessions - 2nd Tuesday of the month @ 6 pm Foster parent information sessions are for those interested in learning more about the need for foster, respite, or kinship families in their county and the steps required to become a foster parent. The primary goal of foster care at Berkshire is reunification. Initially, the foster parent’s role is seen as a temporary one. Over half of children who enter foster care are reunified with their birth parents. We ask our foster parents to support these efforts—including facilitating visitations with birth parents and attending court appearances. Although this may not be a permanent situation, as a foster parent, you are making a permanent, positive impact on the life of a child even once they return to their birth parents or are placed with another relative when that is found to be in his or her best interest. Join us at our next foster parent open house to learn more about what it takes and if fostering is right for you.
