Foster parent recruiter hosts open house

Amy Lindley, The Next Door’s foster parent recruiter, will host a series of informal open houses at Mid-Columbia Fire and Rescue, 1400 W. Eighth, The Dalles, for those interested in what it takes to become a foster parent.

The open houses will be held Aug. 10, Aug. 17 and Aug. 24, from noon to 1 p.m.

“Participants will learn more about the rewards and challenges of being professional foster parents,” said Lindley. “By the end of the event, participants will be prepared to make a decision about pursuing this rewarding career.”

Registration is appreciated — call 541-308-2207 — and lunch will be served.

The Next Door cares for 20-25 foster kids, ages 6-18, with homes in Wasco and Hood River Counties.

To find out more, visit or call Lindley at 541-308-2207.
