Summit County Children Services is sponsoring a free Foster Care and Adoption Information Meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 4 at 6 p.m. at the Tallmadge Branch Library, 90 Community Road, Tallmadge.

There is always a need for foster and adoptive parents in Summit County. Summit County Children Services presently has more than 200 children in foster care - including nearly 40 children in permanent custody waiting to be adopted. Those attending the information meeting will learn a variety of details about foster care and adoption including what and how long the process is, what kind of support is provided by the agency, and the minimal costs involved with adopting a child through a public agency such as SCCS. Agency staff will be available to share basic information about the children coming into care.

This event is open to the entire community and reservations are not needed.° For more information on Foster Care and Adoption through Summit County Children Services, call 330-379-1990.
