Brunswick County’s Department of Social Services could use more foster parents.
Tamela Jones, DSS licensing supervisor, is encouraging people to take part in a 10-week training program to become licensed as a new foster parent.
There are 145 children in DSS’ care. The children range from only a few months to 18 years old.
The county has 16 foster parents/families licensed by DSS.
Jones said that’s not many, and it’s the reason they are recruiting more.
