Yadkin County needs foster parents to provide love, stability, and safety for children here in our community who have been abused, neglected, or abandoned. There are over 70 children in foster care in Yadkin County. Many of the children have to move outside of the county due to lack of foster homes. They are not only separated from their siblings many times they are also separated from their school and friends.
The children in foster care come from diverse backgrounds, ranging in age from infancy to 18. We need more foster parents, single or married, to help bring our kids back home and keep brothers and sisters together.
Foster families are required to participate in Model Approach to Partnership in Parenting (MAPP) training. This training can help you discern if this is the right choice for you. If you decide to become a foster parent, social workers provide ongoing support. You are never alone.
