We are brand new foster parents through Family Health & Support Network. The staff has always been available and helped us through each step of this process. We feel very blessed that we are officially a part of this team!
I have a first hand experience of seeing the changes that have been made in every youth's life that passes through the program. It is an organization that is focused on family, community, and personal growth.
Being volunteer for Family Health & Support Network is so rewarding and such a wonderful experience, kowning you have said are done something that may have changed the life of a child or his/her family member.
