Foster Care Info Meetings

Volunteers of America is looking for skilled parents to provide care for troubled youth in one of their three foster care programs. They will be holding information meetings to talk about what foster care is, the 3 different VOA foster care programs, and requirements. Meetings give potential foster parents time to ask questions. There are many native foster children that want to stay/grow up in a native home (ICWA - Indian Child Welfare Act). We are specifically recruiting for native foster parents. Provide training, 24-hour support, and monthly stipend. 10:00 am - 11:30 am. Event takes place at: 7625 Metro Blvd. Edina, MN.
