May is National Foster Care Month and GA Family Services stopped by the 2 to 6 Takeover with Yasmin Young to talk about how you can become a foster parent!

According to the National Foster Care Coalition, National Foster Care Month has three main campaign goals:
1.Raising awareness of foster care issues.
2.Motivating others to help foster care and foster children succeed.
3.Create a positive framework that maintains the progress made during the month of May throughout the rest of the year.
