WHEELING, W.Va. (WTRF) – In school learning may be best for most children, but it could also increase the number of children who need a home to stay in.
More than 7,000 children are currently in the West Virginia foster care system, but there aren’t always enough foster parents.
Necco Wheeling Home Resource Coordinator Kim Dully said you can choose how many children and what age group you are comfortable with.
She explained they strive to make it the perfect match not just for the child, but also for the foster parents.
If this is something you would be interested in, Dully has some easy advice on how to move forward.
Call me. Call me. Check out the website Necco.org and just reach out and ask for information. Just because you ask for information doesn’t mean it’s an automatic yes and we are going to drop a kid off to you tomorrow. Parents are trained nine to ten weeks long so we absolutely train you, we get you ready to go, but just call and ask questions and if it’s on your heart, call.Kim Dully, Necco Wheeling Home Resource Coordinator
