Foster Friday - Special Dedication to our Foster Parents

Introducing Ayla and Audra


Ayla Harwood and Audra Lee became licensed foster parents on January 20th, 2017. In the past ten months, they have been working as members of our professional team to help reunify two siblings with their biological parents. Ayla and Audra understand the importance of family, and work hard to support the children’s family relationships. The case manager of the children has expressed how involved the foster parents are with the children’s educational and behavioral needs. Thank you Ayla and Audra for making the child’s best interest first priority!
