[KHTS] – Children’s Bureau officials are planning to hold an information meeting in Valencia about how to adopt foster children through the nonprofit.
Children’s Bureau is a nonprofit organization whose representatives work to help children get adopted and are hosting the event in November, which is recognized as National Adoption Awareness Month.
While all adoption–related issues are important, the particular focus of this month is the adoption of children currently in foster care, according to the news release. Every child deserves to have a safe, loving and permanent family.
There are children currently in foster care who are unable to return to their families of origin. Children’s Bureau encourages caring families to consider foster-adopting these children, according to the news release.
Children’s Bureau officials also invites individuals and couples to become Resource Families to care specifically for children during the reunification process with their parents.
Families who have the willingness, ability and resources to care for teenagers, older children and sibling sets are also invited.
The monthly information meeting for those interested in learning more is on Saturday, Nov. 22 from 10–11:30 a.m. at the Westfield Valencia Town Center Community Room Level 1 by LOFT, 24201 W. Valencia Boulevard, Valencia, CA 91355.
