Archdiocesan Catholic Social Services (CSS) 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.

The children — unaccompanied minors fleeing violence and poverty in Mexico and Central America — are served by CSS in partnership with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Migration and Refugee Services.

CSS will provide an overview of the program during an online information session scheduled for Aug. 24 at 2 p.m.

All are welcome to participate.

To join the webinar, RSVP to tfcinfo@chs-adphila.org or call 267-975-9241.
