More than 5,000 young people in Philadelphia live in foster care, and there is a constant need for loving foster families for these children.
Meanwhile, being a foster family is easier than you might think, as well as one of the most rewarding ways that you can make a difference in a young person’s life.
On March 18, NBC10 and Telemundo62 are hosting an informational phone bank so that Philadelphia families who are interested in learning more about providing foster care can have all their questions answered.
Breaking news and the stories that matter to your neighborhood.
From 4 p.m. til 6:30 p.m. call 215-201-5200 to get in touch with recruiting experts who will be in our studio to talk with anyone who wants more information.
We will be able to provide information in English and Spanish as there’s a deep need for Spanish-speaking families involved in the foster care system.
Our phone bank is sponsored by our partners at the Philadelphia Department of Human Services and its provider agencies.
If you want further information about fostering, please contact the Philadelphia Department of Human Services by emailing Dhs.firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 215-683-5709.
