Gov Hopes More Kansans Will Become Foster Parents

Foster-Care 5-14-13Advocates for Kansas children in the state's foster care system gathered at the Statehouse to raise awareness of the need for more foster homes. Yesterday's (MON) event started with a proclamation signing by Governor Sam Brownback.

The governor declared May as Foster Care Month in Kansas. State officials are hoping to increase awareness about foster care and encourage more Kansans to consider becoming foster parents.

Advocates put on an informational fair on the Statehouse grounds coordinated by the Kansas Department for Children and Family Services. Blue wristbands were distributed to show support for foster children and efforts to find them homes.
