Chautauqua County is looking for foster parents

Chautauqua County is looking for foster parents, and will hold an open house for prospective parents from 4 to 6 p.m. Aug. 23 in Park United Methodist Church, 25 Maple Ave., Cassadaga.

Children are placed in foster homes in situations when they have been removed from their own families because they have been abused and/or neglected or because other family problems exist that endanger their safety. The children may range from infancy through 18 years of age.

Of the 112 children in foster care in the county, 55 percent are 5 or under, according to Leanna Luka-Conley, deputy commissioner of Adult, Child and Family Services.

Those who would like more information can call 661-8051 or 363-3570, or visit www.chqhhs.com or the Facebook page, CCFosterParent.
