May is National Foster Care Month

The Montgomery County Commissioners join Children Services in recognizing May as National Foster Care Month and urge residents to do something positive to make a difference for children in foster care. Montgomery County has around 700 children in foster care, while many more children live with grandparents/relatives when their parents cannot care for them.

"Foster families open their homes and hearts to support children during some of the most difficult times in their lives," said Assistant Director Geraldine Pegues, Montgomery County Department of Job and Family Services, Children Services Division. "Foster and kinship families are our unsung heroes."

Children Services is seeking more people to serve in this important role. Call 224-KIDS (5437) or go to mcohio.org/childrenservices for more information.
