Adoption information meeting slated

BIG STONE GAP, Va. — If you’re interested in adopting a child, Frontier Health’s Post Adoption Services is ready to help answer your questions from 3-6 p.m. on June 16, 2015, at the Tales of The Lonesome Pine Bookstore.

Local foster/adoptive parents and VALUES foster and adoption specialists will be on hand to discuss foster care and fostering to adopt.

The program is sponsored by Planning District One Behavioral Health Services and the Frontier Health Post Adoption Services Program. Funding is provided through a Virginia Department of Social Services grant to support services for foster and adoptive parents in Wise, Lee and Scott counties, and the City of Norton.

Frontier Health’s Post Adoption Services Program hosts a support group the first Thursday of each month at 5:30 p.m. at Addington Hall in Duffield, Va. The support group is open to parents, professionals and anyone who works with foster or adopted children. Participants are connected to community resources and receive training, support and information on being an effective foster or adoptive parent.

Frontier Health services in Lee, Scott and Wise counties and the city of Norton are funded in partnership with Planning District One Behavioral Health Services.
