Letter: Vermont Needs Foster Parents

To the Editor:

May is Foster Care Month. Are you able to help Vermont’s foster children? We need foster parents who are able to care for Vermont’s children in custody. We have need for emergency, short-term, long-term and respite-care providers. I have information I can send out to explain the program’s needs. You must reside in Vermont and be over 21, and all adults need to be able to pass a background check. We provide training and ongoing support as well as a monthly stipend and transportation reimbursement to our foster parents.

Please contact me at the Hartford Department of Children and Families – Family Services office for more information.
