Latest Foster Family Café

Turning Points for Children held a Foster Family Café on Saturday, June 21 at the Oxford Circle Mennonite Church in northeast Philadelphia. The program included testimonials from a foster parent, a youth who is currently in foster care and presentations from Turning Points and the National Adoption Center. The presentations helped the families to understand what it means to be a foster parent and how children in foster care need the love and stability of caring foster parents to help them reach their potential.  Twenty families attended and asked many questions during the presentations and then shared lunch with the staff of Turning Points and the National Adoption Center.  Families who attended were invited to attend an orientation meeting with Turning Points to begin the process of becoming a foster family.  More than half the families signed up to attend the orientation!
