Looking for Foster Parents Willing to Talk about Experiences
My name is Sarah Jones, and I'm a university student working on a research project that examines the effects of substance abuse on the foster care system. A large component of my research is made up of interviewing foster parents about their experiences. I'm interested in talking to foster parents where substance abuse has played a large part in the fostering experience.
If this sounds interesting to you, please reply to this thread with any questions and contact mofostercareproject @ gmail.com to participate. Your identity will not be disclosed in my research, nor is it necessary for you to provide identifying information besides state of residence and years of experience in fostering.
I'm hoping that my research will help with the efforts to increase foster parent retention in my home state, Missouri.
Thanks so much!
