If you believe that every child deserves the right to develop his or her full potential and to have a safe and unburdened childhood, please consider attending this informational meeting to learn more about therapeutic foster care. Throughout the State of Maine, youth are in need of families that will step forward and invite them into a safe, compassionate and healing home. Imagine what would happen if just one family from each of our local towns would step forward and care for a child! At the meeting we will explain how children come into our care, how long they typically stay with a family, the supports and reimbursement available to foster parents, and the process of becoming a foster parent. Come learn about the life changing difference you could make for a child! Call CHCS to register for the informational meeting, or an individual appointment. Stephanie Doore is a Program Coordinator at Community Health and Counseling Services (CHCS). She has worked for CHCS for 24 years. In April 2016, Adoptive and Foster Families of Maine presented her with Private Agency Worker of the Year Award.
