Our Foster Care program at Wesley Family Services was the recipient of a grant from Allegheny County to recruit more foster parents for teens in need. In addition to the ads placed on TV and Port Authority buses, our own Colleen Slebodnik was answering questions about foster care on radio and TV programs.
“Children come into foster care for a lot of reasons. There is a myth that these are bad kids, but that’s not the case. These are children that could not be made safe in their homes,” said Colleen Slebodnik in a TV interview with Pittsburgh Living. “There are also a lot of myths about what it takes to be a foster parent. Many people are able to do this – they just need to give us a call to find out.”
