Become a Foster Parent

CHANGE A LIFE, BECOME A FOSTER PARENT!

Mountain Circle sincerely appreciates the amazingly generous Butte County Foster Parents!

There is no better gift to give a child than a family. With the holidays approaching there are many children in Butte County in need of warmth, love, shelter and a caring environment.
In Butte County alone there are over 500 children in Foster Care. Many of these children sadly are placed in homes outside of their community because there aren’t enough foster parents in Butte County. DREAMS don’t work unless you DO, adopt a child to make their dreams come TRUE!

If you are interested in learning more about becoming a foster parent please call     1-844-540-8618 or you can also visit http://www.mountaincircle.org/adopt.htm  Don’t forget to check Mountain Circle’s daily updates posted on our Facebook page! Mountain Circle can help you become a certified foster parent, we can answer any questions and teach you ways to help children in need.

For further information, contact: Rachel Goings, Assistant Development Director | 1-844-540-8618 | rgoings@mountaincircle.org
