Marsh Foundation Speakers Bureau Available to Speak Community Groups
VAN WERT, Ohio – The number of children in Ohio that are in need of foster families is extraordinary. And, one of the most meaningful things you can do in life to help a child is to become a foster parent. However, it is a decision that requires a large commitment.
That is why The Marsh Foundation established a speaker’s bureau. Those experienced in the foster care system, and those that have been foster parents themselves, would like to speak to you or your group about the rewarding commitment you can make to help children.
The Marsh Foundation offers family foster care for youth throughout the state of Ohio. Foster families receive several hours of training, 24/7 consultation and substantial reimbursement. You, or someone you know, may make an excellent foster parent and this is an opportunity to learn more about the process.
The Marsh Foundation speaker’s bureau is available to speak to community groups, church groups, Sunday school classes, etc. There is no group too big, or too small. If you are interested, please call 419.238.1695 ext. 233 to schedule a presentation. There is no charge for this service.
