COFFEE COUNTY, Ala. (WDNews) – The Coffee County Department of Human Resources plans to host training sessions for new foster and adoptive parents beginning on August 13, 2024, at 6 p.m. at Hillcrest Baptist Church in Enterprise.

According to the Alabama Department of Human Resources, there are currently 6,000 children in foster care in Alabama.

Some may only need foster care for a few days, while others may need foster care until they can be reunited with their biological family.

Children from all different backgrounds, ethnicities, and experiences need a caring and committed family that can bring them the future they deserve.

There are children of all ages who cannot currently live with their birth families due to the risk of neglect, and physical, or sexual abuse.

Families or individuals interested in being foster parents are subject to an approval process, however, the main requirement is to have the ability and desire to provide the type of care needed by the children served.

To learn more about the requirements of being a foster or adoptive parent, you can visit www.dhr.alabama.gov/foster-care/ or call 334-384-2000.
