|Youth Villages is looking for caring people in Middle Tennessee to become foster parents to children who have suffered abuse, neglect, abandonment or other issues and need a home.
These children need families who will care for them until they can return to their birth families or an adoptive family is found for them.
If the child becomes available for adoption, foster parents often have the first right to adopt, and adoption through Youth Villages is free. Youth Villages' foster parents receive a monthly stipend to help them offset the costs of adding a child to their household.
Candidates should be single or married adults over the age of 25 and living in the Rutherford County area who are interested in becoming foster or adoptive parents.
Free foster parent training classes will start Saturday, Aug. 11, at College Hills Church of Christ, located at 1401 Leeville Pike in Lebanon. Lunch will be provided. For more information on classes or on how you can change the life of a child, contact Blake Bohanan at 615-250-7318 or email@example.com.
