Raintree Village seeks foster parents, volunteer mentors – Valdosta Today
LOWNDES CO. – Raintree Village Children and Family Services are looking for foster parents in the Lowndes County area.
Raintree Village Children and Family Services have a genuine need for foster homes in our local community! The amount of foster children needing placement is so high that there are children displaced to stay in hotel rooms until placement becomes available for them. Therefore, we also see an issue of foster children that have the potential to thrive in the setting of a foster home in the community being placed into group homes, much like ours, because the placement options are so limited. Group homes are an amazing option for those individuals with higher level behaviors and those that need constant supervision, but there are many foster children who could lead lives while feeling a sense of normalcy in a home environment , if only they were given the opportunity! These children genuinely just need to be loved, supported, and given a chance to excel. We are looking for dedicated, loving, and Christian foster parents in hopes that our mission statement can be brought to fruition within the foster homes we are able to open!
We also have a wonderful and devoted staff that is ready to assist with your every need as a foster parent!
Additionally, we are looking for Volunteer Mentors!
If you’re unable to commit your time to fostering children in your home or to mentoring the children in our group home, we are always accepting donations! We are a non-profit, and any donations go straight back into our children on campus for their needs, holidays, events, activities and incentives for good behavior. Donate at raintreevillage.org
Lastly, If you’re unable to do any of these things, we ask for your prayers as we carry out our mission to make a positive difference in the lives of these children.
Raintree Village Children and Family Services is going the EXTRA Mile for children and families. Offering children and youth an opportunity for a future by instilling within them a strong FAITH in God, a HOPE for a better tomorrow, and a LOVE for self and others.
