Critical need for foster families

Smoky Mountain Children’s Home is hosting a free foster care information event on Tuesday, April 2, 2024, 6 p.m. Register in advance at Virtual Foster Infomation Event.

Foster children are placed under the care of the state due to various circumstances such as abuse, neglect, or the inability of their parents to provide for them and there are currently 8,208 Tennessee children and youth in foster care with a critical need for more foster families.

It is essential to provide support and resources to foster children to help them thrive and overcome the difficulties they may encounter, both physically and emotionally. Foster parents make that significant impact on the lives of the children they care for by providing them with a sense of belonging, love and stability.
