Foster Care Month off to great start

Foster Care Month is off to a great start with good participation in our live chat (one person even requested a sign-up packet after thinking about becoming a foster parent for a long time), coverage in the Enquirer, and support of the local social community.

A top local “mommy blogger” did a piece on our new TV commercial and Web site, and several people “retweeted” — or forwarded — information about foster care. Our new TV commercial got almost 300 views on our YouTube channel (

Interest has been good for an informational session at 6 p.m. Monday at 237 William H. Taft Road.

And we’re excited about upcoming events such as Foster Care Day on Fountain Square, Butterflies and Blue Ribbons and Every Child’s Hope weekend.

Hamilton County has a severe shortage of foster parents. We’re doing what we can to encourage people to step up and fill the need. I appreciate your support.
