01 Oct CHI Shows Appreciation for Foster Parents

Foster Parent Appreciation
CHI team members prepare gifts for therapeutic foster care parents via a drive-through format.

The 26 families serving as foster parents in Community Health of South Florida, Inc.’s Specialized Therapeutic Foster Care Program are facing tough times. The challenge of caring for a foster child with severe behavioral health issues can be a daunting task. But with COVID-19, quarantine, and online school, the job has become astronomically more difficult. That is why CHI set out to do something special to recognize those parents for their devotion and love. 

“I’ve been taking care of children for over seven years, and for me, there is no greater satisfaction than to make them feel like they matter,” said therapeutic foster mom, Ms. Alina. “It feels great to be recognized for the tireless effort we make for these amazing children.”

Usually, the organization hosts an annual foster care appreciation brunch, but this year, that was not possible. So instead, the drive-through appreciation event helped show foster parents that their work has not gone unnoticed. 

Making the decision to become a foster parent is a serious commitment to a child. That’s why CHI’s team of therapeutic foster parents are truly an example of perseverance and admiration.
