Brunswick County Department of Social Services offers an upcoming information session for any adult interested in becoming a foster parent

MEDIA RELEASE

BOLIVIA, N.C. – Brunswick County Social Services is hosting a free information session for adults interested in becoming foster parents on May 24, 2022, from 6 to 8 p.m. The Explore the World of Foster Care event will take place in the Department of Social Services building in Bolivia.

Foster care is temporary care for children who have the ultimate goal of returning home to their birth parents or other relatives. At any given time in Brunswick County, there are approximately 180 children in foster care because their own families are in crisis and unable to provide for them.

Foster parents play a vital role in understanding the needs of the children during these difficult times. With their help, intervention and nurturing can make all the difference to a child in need. You can read a firsthand account of what it’s like to be a foster parent in Brunswick County here.

To RSVP for the session or for additional questions, contact Brunswick County Social Worker Matthew Ames at 910.253.2112 or email matthew.ames@brunswickcountync.gov
