HOW TO HELP: Foster parents needed: Learn ‘what it takes’

The Next Door’s foster parent certifier, Becci Crane, will host an informational class about “What it Takes to Become a Foster Parent” every Monday this month beginning April 8.

The class will be from 6-7 p.m. at The Next Door’s conference room at 965 Tucker Road in Hood River.

This class will detail the rewards and challenges of being professional foster parents. Participants will learn how to become professional foster parents and make a big difference in a treatment foster child’s life. By the end of the class, they will be prepared to make a decision about pursuing this rewarding career.

The Next Door cares for 25-30 foster teens, with most of their foster homes located in Wasco and Hood River counties. To find out more, visit
