November Foster Care Welcome Nights Announced

Posted on 10/30/2017
November Foster Care Welcome Nights AnnouncedWeld County Department of Human Services (DHS) is excited to announce a format change for its Foster Care Welcome Nights, as well as the scheduled November dates for both north and south county.

“Since we launched our campaign, we’ve received an outpouring of interest in the form of emails and phone calls asking for more information about becoming a foster parent for Weld County,” said Judy Griego, Director of Human Services. “We are incredibly thankful to our wonderful community for taking this first selfless step to help abused and neglected children, but more families are still needed to provide loving homes to these children in need.”

The new format for the Welcome Nights is open-house style from 4:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m., with a presentation beginning at 5:00 p.m. Interested individuals are encouraged to drop by at their convenience and stay for the presentation, if possible. Staff will be available to answer questions and provide more information, as well as the guidance and forms needed for those ready to pursue becoming a foster parent.

“We want to make the process as simple and streamlined as possible for those interested in fostering,” said Commissioner Barbara Kirkmeyer, Coordinator for DHS. “By updating the format and offering a south county presence for our initial Welcome Nights, we hope to reach even more members of our community who may want to open their hearts and homes to our county’s children in need.”
