Aunt Martha’s Seeks Individuals and Families Interested in Becoming Foster Parents

Agency will host informational meeting at the Logan Square Library on January 18th

All children deserve a safe, happy life — including the nearly 500,000 American youth in foster care. Young people in foster care especially need nurturing adults on their side because their own families are in crisis and unable to care for them.

Aunt Martha’s Youth Service Center is looking for energetic, loving and committed people who are interesting in helping children, ages newborn to 18.

If you’d like to learn more about what it means to be a foster parent, join Aunt Martha’s for an informational meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 18 from 6 – 8 p.m. at the Logan Square Library, 3030 W. Fullerton Ave., Chicago.

To reserve your seat at Tuesday’s meeting, contact Aunt Martha’s Foster Care Licensing Unit at 708-210-2454.
