12 Oct Foster Care Celebration
Currently, there are over 300 children in the legal custody of Cobb County Department of Family and Children Services. The children range in age from newborn to 18. Temporary placement for the children is provided by 120 foster homes in Cobb County. This support is available for the children until they are able to leave foster care and be returned to birth parents, extended family members or adoptive placements. Established in 2011, the JLCM holds a Foster Care Celebration to celebrate these children and families. This year’s Party for a Purpose celebrated 54 foster children and 22 foster parents. Support was provided by The Strand Theatre, Willie Rae’s Restaraunt, Yogli Mogli and magical entertainment by Tommy Johns. Goody bags were donated by Cobb EMC, Communities in Schools Marietta/Cobb County, Walton Communities and The School Box.
