Foster homes needed in Warren County
Placeholder Image

Youth Villages, a private nonprofit organization, is offering several opportunities for the McMinnville community to help children in need of homes.
A statewide Day of Prayer for foster children next Sunday, May 18, will highlight Foster Care Awareness Month. Youth Villages is asking churches in the McMinnville area to join other churches across Tennessee in praying for children who are awaiting loving foster homes.
Adults in the McMinnville area who are interested in becoming foster parents are invited to attend free foster parent training classes on Saturdays at 9 a.m., beginning May 31, at the Youth Villages office, located at 448 Neal Street, Cookeville, TN 38501.
Foster parents should be over the age of 25 and living in the Warren County area. Foster parents should have viable income, reliable transportation, and be able to pass a background check and home study.
Youth Villages provides foster parents with 24-hour access to counselors, support groups and a monthly stipend to offset the cost of adding a child to the home. Foster parents also often have the first right to adopt if the child becomes available for adoption.
For more information about becoming a foster parent, or how you can help support children in need during Foster Care Awareness Month, contact Shawn Cline at 931-560-4233 or shawn.cline@youthvillages.org.
