Foster kids in Northern Michigan are in need of homes. The Department of Human Services says Benzie, Manistee, Grand Traverse, Kalkaska, and Leelanau counties are all in need of new foster homes but there simply is not enough.
DHS says they would like to keep children near their family and the same school district to make for easier transition, however, it is becoming more and more difficult. People are being urged to become licensed foster parents to help children in their time of need. If you are interested or would like more information call 1-855-MICHKIDS.
