Sponsor Spotlight: Fostering Washington

by Elise on May 7, 2017

FosteringWAlogo_NoHands

Have you ever considered being a foster parent?

In Eastern Washington, we need dedicated parents just like you every day to offer safe homes to our most vulnerable children.  There’s no “perfect” foster parent, single, married, any gender, working or not, any sexual orientation, anyone with a heart for kids, who passes a background check and has sufficient household income can change the life of a child.

Eastern Washington University’s Fostering Washington Program supports foster parents through Recruiter Peer Mentors who offer ongoing support through the licensing process, peer support for a family’s first foster placement, support groups, training opportunities, and social media networking. Listen To Your Mother is so proud to partner with Fostering Washington this year and share the need for loving homes with our audience.

For more information on becoming a foster parent visit email fosteringwa@ewu.edu, or call 509-359-6130.

Sponsor Spotlight: Spokane Community College and the Parent Education Program

April 26, 2017

LTYM Spokane would not be possible without our community partners and we are so thrilled to have the Spokane Community College as a local sponsor again this year. SCC offers a wide range of affordable, fun classes to the community at very low cost, including cooking, sports and fitness, music, and language classes.  See their website for spring offerings and registration.  SCC also offers classes specifically for seniors in their Act 2 program. Dearest to our hearts is their Parent Education and Parent Cooperative Preschool Program. All seven children of Spokane producers Elise and Stacey spent their early learning years in an SCC cooperative preschool. These play-based, educator-facilitated programs are run by a parent board, making them an amazing experience in community and cooperative learning for parents and kids. We can’t recommend the program highly enough. Look up your local co-op preschool and join the fun next fall! Enrollment is going on right now. Thank you to […]
