Urgent need for foster parents in West TN


Youth Villages is looking for caring people in Shelby, Fayette and Tipton Counties to become foster parents to children who have suffered abuse, neglect, abandonment or other issues and need a home. These children need families who will care for them until they can return to their birth families or an adoptive family is found for them.

If the child becomes available for adoption, foster parents often have the first right to adopt, and adoption through Youth Villages is free. Youth Villages’ foster parents receive a monthly stipend to help them offset the costs of adding a child to their household.

Candidates should be single or married adults over the age of 25 and living in the Mid-South area who are interested in becoming foster or adoptive parents.

For more information on how you can change the life of a child, contact LaToya Maxwell at901.252.7648. Classes are free and participants can attend on Tuesday and Thursday evenings (dinner provided) or on Saturdays (lunch provided). The next session of classes begin Tuesday, July 10th at 6 p.m. & Saturday, July 14th at 10 a.m. at 5515 Shelby Oaks Dr. in Memphis.
