Our County, Our Kids Participates in Game of the Season with Unique Outreach Effort


Resource Family Recruitment Programs Build Relationships with Local Schools, Families, and Youth

Do you remember seeing your parents in the stands at your sporting events or in the audience for your major life milestones?  Every child deserves someone cheering for them on the sideline and supporting them through life’s biggest moments, but many foster youth lack loving homes to provide this kind of stability and encouragement.  In an effort to raise awareness and support for the 425 foster children and youth in Santa Barbara County, Our County, Our Kids, a program of Santa Barbara County Department of Social Services, is building its relationships with local schools, families, and youth. 

 

As part of this outreach collaboration, members of the Our County, Our Kids recruitment team will be on site September 16th as the Santa Maria Saints and Righetti Warriors play their annual game, showcasing the talent of student athletes in the Santa Maria Valley.  Anyone interested in learning more about becoming a resource for local foster children and youth is encouraged to stop by the Our County, Our Kids booth for more details on fostering, adopting, mentoring, and other ways to support local foster children and youth.  Additional details will also be available at upcoming Our County, Our Kids informational meetings in Solvang on September 19th and in Santa Maria on October 6th.  For meeting details, visit http://ourcountyourkids.org/.
