Catholic Charities Hosting Free Information Sessions on Foster Parent Process, Adoption

A Statement Released by Catholic Charities

BUFFALO, N.Y., Sept. 7, 2011 – Parents, families and individuals residing in Erie County interested in learning more about adoption or becoming a foster parent are encouraged to attend one of several upcoming introductory sessions beginning Sept. 14 at our 525 Washington St., Buffalo office.

Catholic Charities provides foster care and adoption for children of all ages who cannot live safely in their own homes and need to be placed in the temporary or permanent care of a loving, nurturing family. Children in foster care may have special physical, emotional or psychological needs, and may include siblings who should be placed together. There is currently also a specific need for homes to foster adolescent children.

The information sessions are: Sept. 14, 10-11:30 a.m. or 6-7:30 p.m.; Oct. 11, 10-11:30 a.m. or 6-7:30 p.m.; Nov. 8, 10-11:30 a.m.; and 6-7:30 p.m. Nov. 9.
