CoffeeShop for Those Fostering Teens or Older Youth (Milwaukee)
October 7 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Do You Foster a Teen or Older Youth?
First off, THANK YOU for opening your home to one of our older youth in need of a safe and stable family. Over 23,000 teens in America will age out of foster care every year with no home, no family, and no positive role model to turn to for direction. Our teens need love and stability just as much as our infants, our toddlers, and our preschoolers.
CoffeeShop is not a training or a class, it is simply a chance to connect with other foster parents who have cared for, are currently caring for, or are considering caring for an older youth or teen in foster care. CoffeeShop will feature a different “Special Guest” each month who will be able to provide insight and information about different resources for teens throughout Milwaukee County.
For additional information, or if you are interested in being one of our “Special Guests,” please contact Sarah Sergeant at 414-231-4867 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
