Announcement: Safe & Supportive Foster Parents Needed for LGBTQ Youth

Has the recent rash of teen suicides affected you deeply? Do you want to do something meaningful for kids in our community? There are dozens of children in the Portland area in need of foster homes that welcome kids who may be gay, lesbian, bi, transgender, or questioning.

Many of these children have experienced rejection because of their perceived sexual orientation or gender identity. They need compassionate people who can provide a youth in foster care with a safe place to live and provide them with acceptance of who they are.

Please contact Larry Dalton at the Oregon State Department of Human Services at (503) 872-5562 to get more information or go to the link below to find out how you can help:
