Give back to the community by becoming a foster parent

You don’t have to live in Clermont County to be licensed as a foster home through the Clermont County Department of Job and Family Services (DJFS).

“We need more individuals and families to step forward and become foster families.  Our foster families have a great support system, and are truly one big family,” said Clermont DJFS foster care recruitment specialist Ashley Thompson.  “We encourage anyone who has ever considered becoming a foster parent to give us a call and find out more information at (513) 732-7765.”

Recently, the Hamilton County Department of Job and Family Services announced that effective April 1, 2010, it will no longer be a licensing agency for foster parents; Hamilton County will utilize contract agencies for the placement of their foster children.
