The need for foster parents throughout the Shenandoah Valley is still at a historic high.
There are currently about 5,400 children living in foster homes across Virginia, including 24 in Shenandoah County. But social service agencies are constantly looking for willing families to volunteer their time, their homes, and their hearts to help at-risk children out of difficult situations.
From Winchester to Harrisonburg, Children’s Services of Virginia is the private entity contracted to administer the foster care program. These professionals are responsible for both recruiting and training new volunteers.
