Thanking foster parents for their service

Foster parents dedicated to providing specialized therapeutic foster care homes as part of the Intensive Children’s Services therapeutic foster care program were recently honored with a luncheon on May 9  at West Sound Technical Institute’s Three Seasons Restaurant.

These extraordinary and talented community members have been improving the lives of foster youth with behavioral and emotional needs through Kitsap Mental Health Services’ Intensive Children’s Services foster care program. As foster parents, they have given years of service to help local foster youth stabilize their behaviors and their lives through their commitment to providing caring foster homes.

Our foster parents have been doing wonderful work with local foster youth and their dedication to the children in their care deserves more recognition than is possible in any one afternoon together. We know that many children in our schools and in our communities have had their lives redirected and restored through the dedication and care of our foster parents.

Thank you for all that you do!

Lindsey Phillips | Intensive Children’s Services Foster Care Licensor and Recruiter, KMHS
