May is Foster Care and Foster Family Recognition Month
All children need love, support, security and a place to call home. We celebrate all those who have invited a child in need into their hearts and homes, making foster care possible. (Thank you!) #FosterCareMonth
Fairfax County recognizes that June is Fatherhood Awareness Month. Fathers, like mothers, play a significant role in their children’s psychological and emotional development. They contribute to their children’s safety and stability, and there is a direct link between positive father involvement and child well-being. Learn more about Fatherhood Awareness Month and join us in celebrating fathers. #FatherhoodMonth
