Agency holds open house for prospective foster parents


An event was held on Tuesday to highlight the need for foster parents in Hamilton County.

As part of the 'Be the Somebody' campaign, Lighthouse Youth Services held an open house. The event was to provide more information and help recruit prospective foster parents.

Organizers say the campaign was launched because the number of children in Lighthouse's care has increased dramatically within recent years.

At any time, there are as many as 850 kids looking for permanent homes in Hamilton County.
