I invite you to join me in being a YES to giving your time to show kids that they are precious, to show our overworked, short-staffed ODHS workers that we appreciate their efforts, to show Resource Families and Birth Families that they have outside support. That many hands truly do make light work!Shannon Deschutes County Volunteer
My dreams for the youth in the foster care system is for them to find themselves and become a part of their version of a family. Family can mean many different things! I want them to love themselves for who they are. Self love is more important than you’ll ever know!Lauren Former Youth in Care
I love all the families I have had the privilege to work with. Some days are harder than others, but the rewards are worth it. I also have an energetic and supportive group of coworkers.Stacie ODHS Social Worker
I don’t think of it as saying yes to fostering. I say yes to the kids. Before I even knew what foster care was, if my kids friends needed help I said yes, and when I was growing up if one of my friends needed help my mom said yes. This is a very easy question. If a child showed up on your doorstep and said, I need help, would you turn your back or would you say come in and l will help however I can?Holly Foster (Resource) Parent
