DSS Hosts Orientation Meeting for Future Foster and Adoptive Parents on April 4

FULTON - The Oswego County Department of Social Services (DSS) hosts an informational meeting for people who are interested in becoming foster or adoptive parents. The session runs from 9 to 11 a.m. on Thursday, April 4 in their offices at 806 West Broadway in Fulton.

Oswego County DSS is looking for people who would like to become foster parents, particularly for children ages 8 and over who may have special needs for supervision. All children available for adoption through the agency have been in foster care for a period of time. Typically, the children are ages 10 and older and have special needs. Oswego County also needs Hispanic foster parents. El Condado de Oswego necesita padres de crianza hispanos!
