The Local Take - Consider Foster Care Parenting

Jan 26, 2017

Saturday, January 28 at 7:00 a.m. on The Local Take on Jazz 91.9 WCLK, I'll speak with Krystal Sherrod of the National Youth Advocate Program (NYAP); Vivian Hood, a foster parent who adopted four sisters; and, Diamond Hood a young woman benefited from being placed in foster care.

Ms. Sherrod shares with us that in Georgia over 11,000 children were in need of foster care in 2014. She explains that her organization works with churches and community organizations to find, train and support foster families.
