“Foster Care Awareness Month” Spotlights Need for More Drew County Foster Care Families

May 14th, 2019 by

F4743C11-4E7F-481F-A9F9-23EAD3521D46
Mayor Chase proclaimed May in Monticello as “Foster Care Awareness Month” during an event honoring the 36 children in foster care from Drew County and the 91 children in foster care in our four-county region of the state (Ashley, Chicot, Dedham, and Drew counties) on the town square today.

Community members and representatives from each local organization serving foster children in Drew County participated in a balloon release in the childrens’ honor, and an art display was erected on the square for the month of May also honoring these children and representing the urgent need for foster homes in Drew County. Right now, only 10 homes serve the more than 90 children in the four county region.

Senator Cheatham of Crossett, Representative Burch of Monticello, Pastor Branch of Holmes Chapel Presbyterian Church, and Deborah West of The Call in Drew County also spoke, prayed, and brought attention to the need for foster homes in our area. Senator Cheatham read Judge Akin’s proclamation for Drew County in recognition of “Foster Care Awareness Month.

Arkansas Baptist Children’s Homes and Family Ministries, the Arkansas Division of Children and Family Services, Children’s Advocacy Center of Southeast Arkansas, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for Children, Families in Need of Services (FINS) of the 10th Judicial District Court, The Call in Drew County, and Vera Lloyd Presbyterian Family Services were each collaborators for the event.
