Through Respite and Connect Events
Crossroads NOLA RespiteOne of the great things about supporting foster families is we often get to spend time with the incredible kids in their care! On March 22 we hosted a Foster Parents’ Night Out – volunteers spent time with the kids while foster parents had an evening to go on a date, run some errands, or relax at home. It was a great night!
We also realize foster parents need to connect with one another and connect to information that addresses their unique parenting situation. On June 17, we served eight foster families at our first “Connect Event.” Utilizing her professional and personal experience, Dr. Kristyn Carver shared best practices for tackling tough talks – talking to your children about foster care and adoption.
