The Foster Village

Did you know that Livingston Parish has 256 foster children?Amy LeJeune, CEO of The Foster Village, spoke at the September VFC Council Meeting to inform the group about The Foster Village.This non-profit focuses on providing support for our local foster children.They have items that are used to equip children that have been through traumatic events of loss.All services offered to the children are free of charge.The Foster Village Mission is “to make sure every child in need is clothed with dignity & given something of their own since most have lost everything”.At the September Council Meeting, the Council decided that they would collect new items for The Foster Village during the Christmas Program instead of donating to the Sheriff’s Christmas Crusade.

Mark your calendar for the 2019 Annual LVFC Christmas Program. It will be held December 6 at the Port Vincent Community Center.
