Attend an information session on Thursday, April 18 at 7pm in the Activity Room. Foster Parenting is a service that allows people to assist needy children during times of crisis. Children come into care almost every single day in the Lawrence, Methuen, Andover and North Andover area. Hear from a foster parent and social worker about how you can make a significant, positive influence in their lives. The Massachusetts Department of Children & Families serves children of all ages — from infants to adolescents — from every community — who need a home. You can be single, married, partnered, divorced, or widowed. You can rent or own a home. Time spent with you in a stable and secure environment gives a child a chance to heal. The rewards of providing daily care, guidance and acceptance to a child are immeasurable. Every Parent Makes a Difference. Sponsored by Massachusetts DCF and Memorial Hall Library.
