GRANTS PASS, Ore. -- The Every Child campaign is continuing to try to educate and recruit foster parents.
On Monday night, the Rogue Roasters hosted a meeting to try to explain what it means to be a foster parent and how serious the problem is across the state and in Josephine County. The experts at the meeting also tried to motivate parents to go through the background checks and training needed to bring children into their home.
Amanda Morse attended the meeting. "I want to become a foster parent because we have so many kids in our community that don't have a home, they don't have the structure that they need and if they have a few moments to be in my home, get some love have some structure before their parents can get it back for them, then I'm happy to do that for them. I did get a lot of information from here on, going to the classes, what fostering in Grants Pass looks like for us so," Morse said.
People interested in becoming a foster parent can contact the Department of Human Services for information on Aprils' foster parent training.
