GREENSBORO – Children’s Home Society of North Carolina is announcing an expansion of a statewide program to find permanent homes for older children in foster care during National Adoption Month.
Children’s Home Society will also be providing the expanded child-focused recruitment program at no cost to county social services agencies across North Carolina. This is done in partnership with the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, Wendy’s Wonderful Kids and the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Division of Social Services.
“Older youth who are adopted are more likely to finish high school, go to college, be employed and lead more stable lives than those who age out of foster care with no permanent family,” Sharon Barlow, Director of the Division of Children’s Services in Guilford County, said. “We know that being connected to a family makes a life-long difference.”
