Foster Care Month
May is Foster Care Month, a time to recognize the amazing efforts of foster families and to encourage others to open their homes. Wayne County Children & Youth highlighted the occasion by talking about the improvements they made and the struggles they faced during the COVID-19 pandemic. Recent regulations have the foster program focusing more on “kinship homes” where children in need are fostered with relatives. Over 40 children in Wayne County have received help from Children & Youth and foster care system just this year.
