Foster Parent Recruitment Roundtables

Summit County Children Services (SCCS) has a critical need for more foster families. Currently, we have approximately 120 licensed homes. As you may know … foster parents make the best recruiters, so we want to get your thoughts and ideas of what we can do together to recruit more families as well as retain the families who are already licensed! 

Join us at one of our Foster Parent Recruitment Roundtables! Staff will be there to facilitate the conversation and record all your suggestions and recommendations … so please come with lots of ideas to share! And for attending, you’ll receive a $25 Target gift card!!
