The meeting will be held via Zoom Video Conference online and interested parties must pre-register by emailing mburns@catawbacountync.gov by April 13.

Resource families include family foster homes and adoptive homes. Specific information about becoming a resource family will be available during the meeting. Participants also will learn about required training for resource families and hear stories about the rewards of helping Catawba County’s children in foster care.
