Shelters full; foster parents needed in Siouxland

Local News

There’s a huge need in the Siouxland area when it comes to foster families.

Monday evening there was another opportunity for local parents to get some information about fostering. 

This comes after a similar meeting last week, specifically for Native American Families. But, advocates say there is a need everywhere and shelters are full, so if you’ve been thinking about fostering, don’t wait.

Ranessa says, “So, we’re kind of in a pinch to find good homes for these kids. I always say that people always think, ‘I can’t be a single mom’ or ‘I have too many kids already,’ or things like that, but you can do it. If you have a love and passion for children, you can do it.”

If you’d like more information about fostering, you can visit Lutheran Services of Iowa online or contact Ansley Griffin at or 712.255.2505.
