May is National Foster Care Month!

Each May, National Foster Care Month provides an opportunity for people all across the nation to focus attention on the year-round needs of American children and youth in foster care. The campaign raises awareness about foster care and encourages many more citizens to get involved in the lives of these youth – whether as their foster parents, volunteers, mentors, employers or in other ways. Learn more about this important awareness month at Fostercaremonth.org or Casaforchildren.org   Safe Place Spot Light: Fannin County Children’s Center 112 W. 5th Bonham, TX. Thank you for opening your doors to youth in need.
