Foster Family Recruitment, Development & Support During and After the COVID-19 Pandemic
All of us have had to learn new skills to connect throughout the pandemic in a virtual space. These new skills have provided us with creative options with which to recruit prospective foster parents. Foster parent information meetings have transitioned to virtual information meetings.
