Catholic Social Services (CSS) of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia will host an in-person information session for those interested in providing foster care for unaccompanied minors immigrating to the U.S. Most of the youth served through the effort are from Mexico and Central America.
CSS, which partners with the U.S. bishops’ Committee on Migration and Refugee Services, will offer the session on Wednesday, May 18 at 6 p.m. at the CSS Northeast Family Service Center, located at 7340 Jackson Street in Northeast Philadelphia.
The agency is seeking caring individuals and families willing to provide a supportive foster care home environment for children and youth ages 5-17 for periods ranging from 2 weeks up to 3 months.
Those interested in attending the information session are asked to RSVP to Iris Puhiera at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 267-975-9241.
