Some years ago, we opened our home to kids in crisis and became a foster home. It’s a challenging thing to do but rewarding. You provide an opportunity for a child to have a safe, secure and stable home to stay during a family crisis or a refuge from an abusive home. The need is great. Right now, there are kids who are waiting for a safe place in which to land.
Rice County Social Services is offering a training opportunity on the topic of sex offender awareness. The training will be held at the Government Services Building, 320 NW 3rd Street, Faribault, Minnesota on Thursday, September 30th at 7:00 p.m. If you would like to register for this training, contact Ruth Smith at Rice County Social Services.
