In Greene county there are approximately 850 children in care because of child abuse and neglect. Our rates of abuse are nearly double the state average. Because we have such high rates of abuse, there is an additional need for foster homes. Please be a part of our effort to house 90 to 95% of children from Greene County in Greene County. The process of being removed from their home is hard enough without them having to change schools or go a long distance to visit friends and family. Join in our efforts by becoming a foster parent.
