This month's edition of Foster Care Footnotes  is one that we encourage you to share with your Foster Parent Champions or others who help support your recruitment and retention efforts.

Almost two years ago, the idea of Foster Parent Champions was born. Since that time, we have had successful training sessions and the Coalition for Children, Youth, and Families has had the pleasure of meeting many of the Champions that were recruited by counties and agencies. There have been lots of ideas coming from everyone involved! In one of the training sessions, a Foster Parent Champion had the fantastic idea to start a Facebook group where ideas and experiences in recruitment could be shared and support given. 

We invite all of the Foster Parent Champions that have been through training to join the Facebook group to be part of a community that has the potential to enrich the position they have taken on. Come connect with others who are passionate about foster care!
