Foster/Respite Request from DCF
My name is Carrie Aldrich and I am the Resource Coordinator out of the Hartford DCF office. My colleagues Kayla Konya and Kaylin Bourgeois are working with me to recruit foster and respite providers in this district. We are currently in dire need of foster homes.
We value and understand the importance of school stability for children when they enter custody. If any staff member or community family would be willing to become an emergency foster home, it could provide a student with a familiar person to stay with even for a day or two while we search for safe family members or a longer-term foster home.
We truly appreciate your time in considering this matter and look forward to connecting soon.
