PAINESVILLE, OH, May 5, 2022 – May is recognized nationally as Foster Parent Appreciation Month. The Lake County Department of Job and Family Services is proud to recognize and express appreciation for the 44 licensed foster homes in our county.
Foster parents are ordinary people who do extraordinary things for children in our community. Foster parents provide comfort, understanding, and safety to children who have oftentimes experienced trauma.
May is a time to recognize these unsung heroes in our community. “Foster parenting can be challenging, and foster parents deserve our support and recognition each and every day. We are extremely grateful to our foster parents who do their best to create stable, safe and healthy environments for children to grow and thrive,” said Job and Family Services Director Suzanne Casar.
The Lake County Department of Job and Family Services’ foster parents are fortunate to receive continued support and recognition from the Lake County Commissioners each May and this year has been no different. During their May 5, 2022, meeting, the Lake County Commissioners graciously passed a resolution declaring May 2022 as National Foster Parent Appreciation Month.
