A Family For Every Child is teaming up with local foster parents to raise money to sponsor "A Hero For A Day", an event where local
foster boys can participate. Foster boys will have the opportunity to meet local firemen, sports celebrities,
and have a little fun in an action packed day.
Organizers say it's a great way for the community to be a part of a foster child's life.
Christy Obie-Barrett, Executive Director of A Family For Every child, noted that
"Statistics show if kids don't get a 'forever family' by 18, they're likely to rely on different systems, whether it's the welfare, or prison systems,".
