Entry Description

COLUMBUS, INDIANA (May 15, 2013)—May is National Foster Care Month and the Bartholomew County office of the Indiana Department of Child Services is saying “thank you” to Bartholomew County foster families at a special event May 20. Foster families stand ready to nurture abused or neglected children and provide a place to sleep, nutritious food to eat, toys to play with and clothes to wear. The temporary safe haven these selfless caregivers provide helps protect some of Indiana’s most vulnerable children.


Bartholomew County foster families will be treated to a complimentary meal and some special presentations. The event will take place at 5:30 pm on Monday, May 20 at Memorial Church, 2327 Seventh St. in Columbus.
