BECOME A FOSTER PARENT FOR NATIVE AMERICAN CHILDREN
     There is an urgent need for enrolled members of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indian families to open their hearts and homes to children to provide foster care in a safe and loving environment.  The children range in age from Infancy to 18.  You can become a foster parent if you are at least 21 years of age and have a stable home.  You can be single, married, or divorced and of any ethnic origin. 
     If you feel like you can make a difference by becoming a foster parent, call Barbara Jones at Family Support Services at 497-6092; Swain County Department of Social Services at 488-6921 or Jackson County Social Services at 586-5546.
