May Is Foster Care Month

Each May, we celebrate National Foster Care Month. It’s a time to bring awareness to the incredible need for loving families to open their hearts and their homes to children who just need a place to be loved. It’s also an opportunity to highlight and celebrate the families that have already taken a chance on foster care.

Take A Chance

There has never been a better time to consider foster care. The need for foster parents in the Greater Cincinnati and Dayton areas is greater than ever. Make a real difference in your community by exploring, supporting, or becoming a foster parent! This May we challenge YOU to take a chance on foster care!
