Hancock County Needs More Foster Families

4/9/19 – 10:03 A.M.

There are currently more than 90 children in Hancock County in custody of the Department of Job and Family Services. JFS Director Randy Galbraith says that’s putting a big strain on his office, and on the number of available foster families in the area…


The Department of Job and Family Services honored area foster families during their “Everyday Heroes” event at St. Andrews in Findlay Tuesday morning.

Galbraith says that looked into more than 1,500 reports of abuse and neglect last year. That resulted in the JFS opening more than 400 cases last year.

Galbraith says they can always use more foster families and volunteers. For more information, you can go to HancockJFS.org.
