The Child Protection and Family Services Agency, CPFSA, is on a drive to recruit more than 1-hundred foster parents this year under its foster care programme.
The push to get more Jamaicans to become foster parents has been ongoing.
But the CPFSA is on a drive to recruit new foster parents to take on the close to 2-thousand children who now require foster care.
Family Life Ministries, FLM, has responded to the call and has started a Foster Care Programme.
Regional Director for the CPFSA’s South East region, Robert Williams says having children in foster care affords them individual attention.
Meanwhile, Programme Director for the Child Foster Care Programme at Family Life Ministries, Holly-Rose McFarlane explained how persons can qualify to become a foster parent.
