Current and prospective foster parents are invited to bring their family and friends to what could be the largest event of its kind in Hampton Roads.
The Foster Care Aware Block Party puts an energetic spin on foster parent recruitment from 1- 6 pm Saturday, May 27th at the Harrison Opera House, 160 W. Virginia Beach Blvd. The event is free and open to the public.
Learn everything you need to know at a one stop shop thru rolling seminars on foster care. Dress the kids as their favorite superhero in honor of our heroes in foster care and compete for prizes. Face painting, inflatables, entertainment, food and freebies round out the afternoon.
At any given time, as many as 200 infants, children and teens are in foster care in Norfolk alone. Foster parents provide the warmth, love and stability these kids need to thrive.
