Event description
Informational Session
Is there room in your home and heart for a foster child?  The Department of Children and Families is actively recruiting foster parents for children in your community of Woburn coming into care.   We are searching for individuals or families with the love and patience to help foster children. You can be single, married, partnered, divorced or widowed.   You can own your home or rent. 
We need homes for children aged 0 to 22 which include sibling groups, children with special needs, medically involved children, and infants born exposed to drugs and older teens.  We are looking for long-term foster homes but also have a need for emergency and respite homes which involve a shorter time commitment on the part of a foster family.
Our goal is to provide our foster children with a supportive and healing environment in a home in their own community until they can be reunited with their families or another plan can be made on their behalf. The rewards of providing daily care, guidance and acceptance are immeasurable. 
If you are thinking about becoming a foster parent, you can learn more about the process and supports provided by the Department by attending an informational session.
