May is National Foster Care Month, and FaithBridge Foster Care is offering information sessions and workshops for those interested in serving children from challenging homes.
An information session with FaithBridge Foster Care is being planned at the Holly Springs Community Center at the depot in the downtown area to offer those who want to be involved in the foster family and volunteer program. Titled “Encounter Faithbridge,” the event is set for May 29 from 7 to 9 p.m.
“National Foster Care Month is an important time to put the focus on so many children who need loving, Christian homes,” said Bill Hancock, founder and CEO of FaithBridge Foster Care. “We believe churches can respond to the needs of the community and help meet the foster care challenge in our state.”
Among the Cherokee County residents who have become foster parents through the FaithBridge program are Ted and Kimberly Campbell of Woodstock.
They are fostering a young girl to give her a stable, Christian home until the courts decide whether the little girl can return to her biological family.
The Holly Springs Community Center is at 164 Hickory Road in Holly Springs.
The public is invited to attend. For more information or to register for events, visit www.faithbridgefostercare.org/news-and-events/events.aspx.
