Summit County Children Services is pleased to offer the following training:
Summit County Children Services thanks the many donors and volunteers who supported the agency's School Supplies Program. This year, more than 1,500 filled backpacks are being distributed to children in care to ensure they are prepared for the start of school. Thank you for your donations and volunteer efforts that helped to make this program a great success!
Summit County Children Services believes that the best place for children to thrive is in their own homes. However, when a child has been abused or neglected – and there is a need for placement outside of the home – whenever possible they are placed with relatives or individuals considered to be “kin” to the child. To honor kinship caregivers for all they do for the children of this community, the month of September is being celebrated as ‘Kinship Appreciation Month’ throughout the county.
Once again this year, the agency's latest Annual Report - entitled 'Finding Forever Families' - is being distributed electronically. Please click here to view the report. Printed copies are also available upon request . . . just contact Chris Vasco at (330) 379-2070 / firstname.lastname@example.org.
Summit County Children Services is proud to share the stories of some of its foster and adoptive families. These are real stories about real families from this community and their commitment to 'building families and building futures' through foster care and adoption.
