A local NKY Girl Scouts troop has been partnering with DCCH's Foster Care Program while earning their prestigious Silver Award.
The girls were in the thick of planning when COVID hit. Like good troopers, they did not give up but re-strategized their project. The final portion is wrapping up with a unique message highlighting the need for more foster and adoptive parents. The girls designed four different bookmarks, each with a foster care message and printed 1,000 copies. With the help of other NKY Girl Scout troops, the bookmarks will be distributed across our region by including them in local cookie deliveries.
Troop 2173 really exemplifies the Scouting spirit, and DCCH is so grateful for their partnership! We encourage everyone to return the gift by purchasing a box (or two) of cookies!
The Therapeutic Foster Care (TFC) and Adoption team celebrated a COVID-inspired Christmas Drive by Party with our families who have current foster placements.
Even though we could not celebrate with a large Christmas party this year, the TFC team was excited to provide our families with a DCCH Christmas! Families with current foster care placements came on grounds for a Christmas drive-thru complete with presents, handmade quilts, dinner and desserts, and a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus!
Merry Christmas, everyone!
The DCCH Foster Care and Adoption Program recently celebrated its 150th adoption!
We are thrilled to reach this milestone and for each and every child who found their "Forever Home". The Team works tirelessly to recruit, train, and support those willing to open their hearts and homes to a child in need.
