County seeks foster parents

The Henrico County Department of Social Services is looking for families to be trained as foster parents as the need for foster home placements has increased during the past year. Henrico has 94 children in foster care, up from 73 children in October 2011.

An orientation meeting will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 3 in the Board Room of the Henrico Human Services Building, 8600 Dixon Powers Drive. Participants will learn about the needs of foster children; the traits of a successful foster parent; the process of working with program staff and the biological parents of a foster child; and the application and approval process.
