The Children's Bureau—together with its
information service, Child Welfare Information Gateway—is pleased to
announce that the 2014 National Foster Care Month website is now live.
This year's theme is "Building Blocks Toward Permanent Families".
Given the critical role judges and attorneys play in keeping children
safe and families strong we invite you to explore the resources below
and share them with colleagues. The website provides resources with
information about supporting permanence through reunification, kinship
care, guardianship, and adoption, including resources specifically
geared toward foster parents and youth.
Explore resources and help spread the word: • Encourage colleagues to visit the Strengthening Families Through Permanence and Engaging Families in Case Planning webpages. • Add a link to your email signature or a widget to your website. • Share the FAQ handout with colleagues at meetings and conferences. • Get inspired by real-life stories from families, youth, foster parents, caseworkers, and others. • Check out the outreach tools offered in the Promote section of the website.
