Currently there are over 200 children in Livingston County in Foster Care!  Unfortunately there are not enough foster homes licensed in Livingston County that will allow the children to stay local in their communities while the families work toward reunification.

Thinking of becoming a foster parent?  Livingston County Catholic Charities (LCCC) is holding an orientation for persons interested in learning more about foster care

Date: 3rd Monday of each month S

Time:  5:00pm – 7:00pm

Place:  LCCC, 2020 E. Grand River #101, Howell

R.S.V.P.:  Call Amanda today to reserve your spot – (517) 545-5944

LCCC is seeking to increase the number of available foster homes in Livingston County to serve the growing number of children entering foster care.  Currently there are not enough local homes to accommodate abused and/or neglected children to keep them close to their home of origin in order to maintain stability in their lives.

Do you have room in your heart and home for one more child?  If so, please call to reserve your spot.
