US: As Need Grows, States Try to Entice New Foster Parents
Pew Charitable Trust: Stateline – March 01, 2019
Child welfare workers traditionally take an analog approach to recruiting prospective foster parents: They put up yard signs, set up booths at churches – even rent billboards. But in Washington state, child welfare workers are shifting to a digital approach. Beginning in April, people who’ve browsed websites on foster care will see recurring online ads espousing the joys of foster parenting – haunting the prospective parent from site to site like a new car or pair of boots. The change reflects a new urgency in foster-parent recruitment.
